Several old messages included this month-old sighting of Swift Parrots were
somehow re-posted to birding-aus on Monday.  Several people apparently
travelled to Kenmore today looking for the Swift Parrots.

Roger Jaensch is concerned that more people may be confused by this old
message and travel to Kenmore this weekend.  Roger hasn't seen or heard
the Swift Parrots since July 17.

   Roger Jaensch asked me to pass on this message in case anyone would
   like to see the birds - they appear like clockwork in the last light
   of the afternoon
   Over the past week the flock of 12 Swift Parrots first noticed in the
   Kenmore South area in early June has visited the original sighting
   locality almost daily. Some time between 1630 and 1645 the birds
   appear around Glen Frew Street, spend a few minutes in the very tops
   of a tall eucalypt, then move to another treetop or leave the area. A
   few stragglers have been seen in fading light (dusk) between 1700 and
   1710 and possible roosting attempts in dense canopies of introduced
   leopard-wood trees have been witnessed. Birds have twice been heard
   passing the area around dawn.

   Roger Jaensch.
