A note on two fronts.
Thought I should add to the records of Swift Parrot sightings for those 
collating the sightings.  I visited the Geoff Miller factory, corner of Talinga 
and George St., between the hours of 3:30pm and 5pm last Saturday, Nov. 04, and 
located 4 Swift Parrots calling from atop the only large eucalypt tree across 
the road by the cut through to Spring St.  They would have been near impossible 
to locate had they not been calling.  After 20min. they flew across to the 
flowering gum trees in front of the factory, joining approx. 20 Rainbow 
Lorikeets and dozens of wattlebirds (both species).  The Swift Parrots fed atop 
the small group of trees for the entire time and were still feeding when I 
left.   Also common bronzewing sitting on path, as an aside.

My second note is a request for information on the best tracks in Jells Park to 
take a small group of students on a birdwatching excursion.  We intend on 
spending a morning there on Fri. Nov. 24th.  I would be most appreciative of 
any info. regarding tracks and any birds to be particularly aware of.

Thank you all,
