Re Regent Parrots in NSW
Peter Milburn wrote about the presence of a Regent Parrot at Euston and
asked if they are known there. The answer is yes, their distribution in
NSW is along the Murray River from Balranald to Dareton where they nest
in the redgums along the river and feed out in the mallee ares. Their
numbers declined because much of the mallee along the Murray River in
this part of NSW is cleared and has been cleared for grazing and
vineyards for some long periods. The best place to see them is east of
Euston down to Swan Hill in the mixed farming and malle patches. The
distribution is still as stated in Morris, McGill & Holmes 1981
