On a Tamworth Birdwatchers outing to Gunnedah last Saturday.   We were lucky 
enough to have a sighting of a Swift Parrot.   It was in flowering gums in 
Black Jack State Forest on the outskirts of town.   We were able to watch it 
for quite a while as it fed quietly in the area, but for most of the time it 
was obscured by leaves.   There was a lot of discussion as we gradually saw 
different diagnostic features.   One member was adamant the rest of us were 
wrong, but luckily photos taken by two members were able to confirm the 
sighting.   Pretty exciting as we don’t often see them up here.
