G'day birding-Ausers

While escorting a visiting American birder on Sat 11/5/02 saw a breathtaking 
spectacle of 200+
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo at Royal National Park, off the Little Marley 
Track. The birds flew up
from the south over the heathland before settling in the trees on the south 
side of Bundeena Rd.

Predominant species on the heath were Tawny crowned and Yellow faced HE's in 
about equal numbers,
fewer New Holland's and a single White eared HE.

My thanks to Steve Anyon-Smith for flushing the Superb Lyrebird on Lady 
Carrington Drive, one of our
visitors target birds.
