At this time, large flocks, (over 500) of Sulphur Crested Cockatoos can be
seen on the ground in paddocks around Canberra.  There has also been a small
group in the large Blakely's Red Gum which overhangs my driveway.  They
appear to be taking lerps of the leaves.  They are also pruning the tree and
dropping the cuttings all over the driveway.  Twigs and small branches are
nipped off and discarded.

I can't recall seeing this before in this tree.  Is it common for SCCs to do
