Nectarivorous birds at Penrith

I visited Penrith very briefly on the weekend enroute to a meeting.  I was 
struck by the number of Noisy Friarbirds and lorikeets in what were 
probably Forest Red Gums (I must admit I didn't look closely).

Given the current extremely dry conditions, the lack of any substantial 
flowering of eucalypts west of the ranges and the complete disappearance 
of Regent Honeyeaters it well might be worth while for local birders to 
have a closer look in this and surrounding areas.

As it appears we will have another failing of eucs to flower west of the 
ranges again this winter will Regents, and Swift Parrots, again move to 
the NSW Central Coast?
