And remaining on the topic of cockies in Melbourne, there are several Long-billed Corellas in a eucalypt here at work in St Kilda (near the busy corner of St Kilda and Dandenong Roads).... has anyone else seen LB Corellas close to the CBD recently?

Must be that time of year - we've had both YTBCs and Gang Gang Cockatoos in our suburban Burwood park at the back of our house (Gardiners Creek Reserve) over the past 2 weeks,

Cheers, Greg

Hi all, Bill here

This morning on my ride into the city I came across the commonly-seen flock
of about 30 yellow tailed black cockatoos.  They were hanging around the old
pine trees next to the former Fairfield infections diseases hospital.
Presently the flew off across Merri Creek into Clifton Hill, and settled in
a tree at the eastern end of Spensley street.

Several of them were carrying what looked like pine needles in their beaks.
Nesting material?
