Hi all
Just came into service to write this.
Have been in Cape York area for the last 4 weeks. 3 days ago I was at Chilli 
beach and heard a high pitched parrot call and followed the sound and found 
about 5 or 6 Double-eyed fig parrots sitting in Sheoke trees on the edge of the 
beach being very vocal and landing in a dead tree and hanging upside down and 
nibbling something on the bark? Lichen? There was male and female,
And out in the open. It was a random sighting and my first of this species. I 
was surprised as I thought I would find it difficult to find them and thought 
they would be hidden in leaves and high up in fig trees or other fruiting trees 
Anyone else found them out in the open like this? 
Would like to hear you're thoughts on their behaviour
Thanks again
Kirri 😊
