I have just been enjoying an early Autumn morning in my garden in Deakin.
At 9:30am, my house was adorned with:
  • a pair of Yellow-tailed Black Cockies (presumably the same pair that I have been seeing around here for the past three weeks)
  • a pair of Gang-gangs
  • 1 Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (and others flying some hundreds of metres away)
  • 2 Crimson Rosellas
  • 1 Eastern Rosella
Beyond the Psittaciformes, there were:
  • 1 Satin Bowerbird (green)
  • 2 Red Wattlebirds
  • 6 Australian Magpies
  • 4 Pied Currawongs
  • 15 Rock Doves flew over
and, heard but not seen,
  • Spotted Pardalotes and
  • Silvereyes.
As I have observed here before, the YTBCs received considerable attention from the Magpies, Currawongs and the SCC.  Clearly they think that the YTBCs are foreigners.
