evenings (anywhere between 5.15 and 6.15pm) over the last fortnight I have
observed small groups (2-8 birds) of Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoos flying over
the Cotter Rd, north from Curtin into Yarralumla.
Maybe a roosting spot somewhere in there? Or
just feeding in the pines?

to be a lot of black cockatoos around at present - earlier this morning a group
of nine flew over as I was hanging out the washing (Wanniassa) - now I've just
had a group of 8 fly past my office window - I haven't noted them in Parkes
Jerrabomberra Wetlands yesterday afternoon a royal spoonbill, intermediate
egret, white faced heron, several dollar birds, quite a number of black fronted
dotterels (adults and juveniles) and some Aust ravens paddling and obviously
finding something worth eating
