Hi all and Happy New Year

A question!!  Is it the case that some Swift Parrots remain in coastal
Victoria over the Summer?  My Daughter, a novice birder, is quite convinced
she had three SP's in her garden at Jan Juc (near Torquay, on the coast, 120
Kms SW of Melbourne) actively feeding in a flowering Eucalypt.  She had
excellent views for around 10 mins, seeing underwing, and all other relevant
markings, size, etc.  She then clearly identified them in her S & D Field
Guide, without realising that they are both uncommon and supposed to be in
Tas. at this time of the year.

Is this very unusual, normal or totally unbelievable???
