Sorry these questions arise:
Before trying to answer whether it is unusual: What
do you mean by "the CR/SP thing"? As
in what is the "thing" are you asking about?
I would not expect these two species to associate
much. They are a very different in size, shape and habits.
I would think it a Swift Parrot a most odd sighting in Canberra at this time of
year. Why did it "seem to be a Swift
Parrot"? What other species have been
considered and why ruled out? I hope it isn't embarrassing to ask if it was just
a juvenile Crimson Rosella which are
after all, more or less similarly coloured (mostly green with bits of red on
head and belly).
