Hi all


I'm used to seeing Red Rumped Parrots at the Fawkner Cemetery when I drive
passed on my way to and from work, but today there is a pair seriously
checking out a piece of square channel used as a gate support in the street
where I work in Brunswick. The nearest park would be about a kilometre away
and there is very little around here other than houses, offices and small
factories. (Although Royal Park is not too far away)


Are they becoming more urbanised? Or have they always been like this and I
have just not noticed. I have been working here for 10 years now and have
not seen them around here before, even in the parks and only started seeing
them at Fawkner in the last 2-3 years. Maybe it's a drought thing?


Whatever, I hope they don't go through with the nesting as it will be like
an oven once the hot weather is truly upon us and I would be surprised of
