Carol et al,
I drove Canberra - Orange - Canberra the weekend before last. While
returning to Canberra and driving on the Cargo Road I came across a flock of
Cockatiels about 15 kms on the Canowindra side of Cargo. While my sighting
was about 80km west of Rockley, my first reaction was surprise at seeing
them that far east.

Hi all,

On Friday afternoon I was driving to Rockley (about 30km south of Bathurst
in central-western NSW) to visit a friend and noticed a flock of about 8
small parrots fly over the road. From the jizz I immediately thought "ah,
Cockatiels" and as one landed I saw its large white shoulder patch which
confirmed the ID, but my mind was on other things and I kept driving. It
was only later that it struck me that this was east of their normal range,
although in these drought conditions not unexpected. There was no sign of
them when I returned the next morning. The location was about 1 or 2
kilometres north of the town of Rockley, where there is a dam on the right
and a house on the left. Have there been any other recent Cockatiel
sightings in the Bathurst region?
