Hello from wintery Finland,

My colleague had to make a quick business trip to Oz and stays at the
moment in Parkes, NSW. Just thought to let you know about his recent,
better sightings in the area.

Today, during a short morning walk, he observed 5 loudly screeching Major
Mitchell's Cockatoos flying in from West and landing on a small hill just a
little North of town, opposite of Station Motel. The birds stayed there ca.
30 minutes for him to photograph before taking off and heading to South.
I'm assuming that the species is usually seen even further inland?

Additionally, on Tuesday, he observed and photographed 4 adult Whiskered
Terns in Gum Swamp, Forbes, NSW. According to eBird, the species is not
very common there.
