Hi all,

The pub at Thargomindah SWQ, used to have large white cedar trees out
the front that the local Red-tails apparently found quite attractive. 
Locals say that when they decided on a cedar hit that upto 30 birds
could be seen in the trees most of the day.  We must have fussy parrots
as well as no other species found the cedars appealing.  Unfortunately
the trees were removed and it is now rare for the Red-tails to venture
into the town.
