   Tue 9 Dec Superb Parrot Jamison Oval (Macquarie)
   About 0640hrs, found a flock of approximately 60-80 Superb Parrots
   (adults, dependent young & half-coloured birds) feeding on the Jamison
   Oval and in the gutters of the Jamison Shops car park too. As I drove
   through there each other morning this week, I could hear the Superbs,
   but didn't seem to be as many as on Tuesday. I realise Superb sightings
   are becoming much more common in the ACT in recent years, but I've
   never seen a flock this size before.
