I have seen YTBC with dys at around this time of year in previous years.

Like all parrots YTBCs are very quiet around their nest hollows, so there's no reason why they should breed on eg Black Mountian, if there are trees large enough to have YTBC sized hollows in them, and no-one to have noted this.
