Further to Lawrie's note about thornbills in the CBD Melbourne.

Yes, Brown Thornbill's are also in the adjacent Fitzroy Gardens, especially
the dense shrubbery running through the middle of the gardens.

Another observation at this locality in the last few days was a flock of
Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos which appeared to have roosted in the tall
pines over night on Monday from what I can tell.  This is the closest to
the CBD I've recorded the species.
