There were two green SBBs in my Deakin garden this
week. One fed the other before they flew off to next door's garden.
I don't know what a begging sound is for SBBs but they (I think both) were
making strange sounds I have not heard before. That is what attracted me
I have also seen a few green birds in the
bushes around Parliament House on and off for much of the summer.
They may be the same birds reported by Marnix in Parkes.
