Looking at Google Earth the oval is about 150m x 180m giving 27,000 sqm.  So, if the cockies were spread evenly and each was at the centre of a square of side 3m  there would have been 3,000 of them.  Taking an alternate approach, if there were 1,000 cockies the side of the 'square' they occupied would be about 5.2m.

I went past the Telopea Park School in Barton late yesterday afternoon, and the oval between NSW Crescent and Fitzroy St was absolutely covered with SC Cockatoos. I have never seen such a number in one location. There were so many I didn't try a count, but there was a cockatoo every few square metres over the entire oval, and and the oval must be several thousand square metres, so there was a minimum of several hundred cockatoos.
