There are several resident flocks of YTBC's around Adelaide, each of which
has it's own seasonal movement pattern. Luke Price, a threatened fauna
ecologist with the South Australian Environment Dept, has documented the
movements and size of these flocks over the past few years using
observations from volunteer birdos. He'd be the best person to contact for


A flock of ~100 YTBCs were feeding on the cones of introduced pines in
Belair (suburb south of Adelaide CBD) early this past September.

Just returned from a 3 week whirlwind visit to OZ.  Whew.  Enough to tell

me as I get older I got to go a bit


I noticed that in Bird Data YTBC shows up in Sept especially south of the

CBD of Adelaide.  Anyone from Adelaide want to comment?  Love to know if

this species is predictably and relatively easy to find in the Adelaide

area in Sept.


Thanks as always for such great help here.  Too many of you to thank for
