2 or 3 swift parrots seen between 0900 and 0930 Saturday in
George St, Sandringham (Melway p77 B12)
But NOT seen perched at the Fildes factory.  One fed for 10 mins
or so in the flowering gums at the Geoff Miller factory, corner
of George St and Talinga Rd and then gave two of us superb views
by sitting and singing about 4m up in another tree.
Earlier 2 had flown from the tallest gum towards the end of
Spring St., one had flown towards the Fildes factory and (the
same bird?) flew further W along Spring St.
The visiting bird with me remembers seeing swift parrots
annually at the Monash Clayton campus many years ago.
