I heard a swift parrot fly overhead this morning as I walked through the eastern part of Aranda bushland (heading south on a firetrail parallel to, and about 150m west of Gungahlin Drive Extension). Despite whipping my hat off straight away I couldn't see the bird, and I don't know of any particularly good flower/lerp sources in the area at the moment so not sure where it may have been heading.
