Hi all.

On several nights over the last few weeks I have heard the distinctive calls of 
Blue-winged Parrots flying over my house in Port Melbourne.  Presumably these 
are birds that have arrived on the mainland from Tasmania.  I have also 
observed them during winter along the Maribyrnong River near Sunshine feeding 
in semi-native Plains Grassland.  I am also listening intently for Swift 
Parrots but so far have not heard any.
