Hi Birdos,
Just a quick note to suggest anyone driving between Uluru and Alice Springs on 
the highway late in the day keep a lookout for Bourke's Parrots. Yesterday, 
racing along the highway to get home before the current storm hit, we passed no 
less than ten parties of these awesome little birds numbering between 3 and 
about a dozen. As we paused roadside north of Erldunda (to have a quick peek 
for Cinnamon Quail-thrush) I flushed one party which headed west, then had 
another party arrive a few minutes later from the east and nearly land at my 
feet! I'll post some photos on Wildiaries soon.
