I work at Woden, and from our office windows this afternoon we saw what I think were lots of starlings and definitely a number of currawongs flying apparently randomly for quite a while, in the midst of floating kapok seeds (?), towards the oval at Phillip. A colleague suggested that they might be collecting the kapok for nests. Is this possible, and do birds like collecting kapok for whatever reason, or was it just a coincidence?
