I previously sent this to the list from work, but it appears not to have been posted.

I was watching some Australian King-Parrots at the ANBG yesterday (Sunday) morning when I saw a flash of a lighter green. On closer inspection the lighter green belonged to a male Superb Parrot. This sighting was made in open forest in Section 88. I continued to see king Parrots and hear Superbs in close proximity and then saw my second male in the rainforest area. I was surprised on two fronts; firstly that the Superbs were obviously associating with the King-Parrots and secondly, having only previously seen Superb Parrots in open country, that the birds were to be found in such dense vegetation.

Dear All,

does anyone know whether the Superb Parrots are still on ANU campus, and if yes, where to look for them?
