G'day Philip, Bill and liccle k,
I've never seen so many wild birds of the parrot/cockatoo species that are around the "Mawning-fun Penninsula" region as at this moment ...
I'm wondering? is it the drought that is pushing them to the coastal regions of southern Oz. Poor starving feathered kids in a man made drought.
Ooroo and lub to hall from John Gamblin sending a water bowl down.

Well of course the Gang Gang Cockatoo is a garden regular in many parts of Canberra. And in my primary school days (1960s) when I lived in Eltham (outer NE Melbourne), the Gang Gangs would come every year and eat the almonds from our tree as they ripened.
