Alas, no Scarlet-chested Parrots on Friday morning, either - though I did
get a flock of 30 Black-eared Miners, which was a bit of a consolation for
a long trip.  I think I know the reason for the original showing up of the
parrots and their disappearnce from Thurdsay.  The Weekend was very hot -
40 degrees at Gluepot.  I think that they probably need to drink only in
very hot weather.  But by Wednesday, it had coooled down to a pleasant
outumn temperature.  So my advice is: wait till it's stinking hot!
