For what it's worth...
I saw a female king parrot on Callum Brae this morning.  She was sitting
within a couple of feet of a rainbow lorikeet, answering its every
vocalisation.  Even more interesting, the rainbow lorikeet was uttering a
greater variety of sounds than I have ever heard from a parrot in the wild.
It sounded more like a cage bird.  However, the rainbow lorikeet did have a
companion of its own kind with whom it later met up, and the king parrot

I have them coming to be fed regularly to my feeder in Aranda. Should I be 
reporting them?
