But, lately, none at all, and in places where they always seemed to be
present in the past.  Any thoughts?   Peter Woodall?

I think it must be local. We have Laughing Kooks around our house in
Moorooka ( southern suburb of Brisbane) and on Saturday at Brisbane
Forest Park I saw 7 in one tree.  Perhaps they were discussing the
very same thing!

Later in the year I'll start to analyse a garden bird survey which has
just ended and that might provide some data on the situation.
