At 11:00am today, I watched a flock of some 40 - 50 Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos flying south west to north east across Lake Ginninderra.
Also counted 18 Red-rumped Parrots perched on power lines, and another group of 22 on lines about 250 metres further around the shore. Interestingly, when I investigated adjacent gum trees, I estimated that there would have been about another 20 perched among the foliage, including three or four which I recognised as immatures. On the other side of the lake I came upon another bunch of about 20 birds perched atop a couple of dead trees.
