On my way up to the Pinnacle this afternoon I spotted a group of 5 Superb Parrots in one of the trees in front of Hawker College (an E. Mannifera). On closer inspection, the group consisted of one adult male and four immatures/females. Up at the Pinnacle things are in full swing. The Dusky Woodswallows are back, Yellow-rumped, Buff-rumped and Striated Thornbills all feeding young, V. Sittellas putting the finishing touches on their first nest of the season (they built 3 last year and finally used the last one), Tawny Frogmouths sitting happily despite the stormy weather and falling trees all over the place, and a pair of Scarlet Robins with a single chick that fledged about 10 days ago (not seen since the heavy rains, however). Also, a group of around 6 Diamond Firetails and yet another White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike, light-morph this time, the call rather reminiscent of a lorikeet and very different from that of the BFCS, which are also now loitering with intent.
