Well the thing that we can probably help you on this, is that probably, "the
white cockatoos that don't appear to have the sulphur crest and I think they
are smaller" are likely to be Little Corellas.

The car park area between Boyce and gale roads is very busy most days.   The
swallow type birds are active,   larger birds, not sure what they are are,
have been  growing less prevalent in the past weeks.
However there has been a proliferation of black crows, very noisy at dusk.
Especially over the past month in particular.

This morning there has been a prolonged avian warfare with white cockatoos
seeking dominance of the territory, circling the east
side  around the tall buildings and in the car park trees.  They are very
noisy.  The flock would number about fifty or more birds.  They don't appear
to have the sulphur crest and I think  they are smaller.

Is the destruction of the trees at centennial park area changing the nesting
habits of the bird population?

I am not a "birder" able to identify all the species, but enjoy the birds
that inhabit the "wilds" of Anzac Parade.
