Swift Parrot "Otto's Grotto" - Park in Ulverstone
At least 20 individuals - difficult to count, with birds constantly flying between trees. In mature Blue Gum trees between Warf ares/Sailing Club/Otto's Grotto (Bicentennial Park). Good flowering of Blue Gums seems to have resulted in good numbers, early in the season. Some birds being chased from food source by Little Wattlebirds, and Rainbow Lorikeets.
