Eastern Rosellas may have bred in Callan Park last summer - I saw or heard
multiple birds on several occasions when out running.  I have seen them
in previous years in Callan Park and at least once on Hawthorne Canal
but like Red-rumpeds more often in the parks to the west of Leichhardt
in Canada Bay & Concord.  I have them on my home list for Glebe courtesy
2 sightings. I did see them regularly on campus at Sydney Uni 20 years
ago, but not in recent years.  I'd be nice if they followed the Crested
Pigeon's lead and became common in the inner west.
