Hi John
After the bushfires which burnt around the south-west of Lake Burley Griffin, they cleared the pine forest, leaving a forest of Rowan Trees (Sorbus). The King Parrots of Yarralumla  and Red Hill used fly over the Lake into the Pines, and roost there in large numbers, leaving behind their illegitimate offspring of Rowan Tree seedlings. Seemingly they survived the fire, or even long-dormant seed germinated after the fires.
