My recollection is that I used to see YTBCs in the Eastern
Suburbs only in the winter months.  Recently I've seen what
seems to be smaller numbers into the summer (my commute
takes me past Moore Park).

Prior to this winter I'd seen only one YTBC in Glebe where I
live.  This winter I've seen flocks of 5-30 several times/week.
I've also seen them elsewhere in in the inner west including at
Rodd Point sitting low in a Casurina has people walked within
few metres of them.  I'm looking forward to habituated YTBC
being common in inner Sydney.
