A party of six king parrots was seen high in she-oak trees by Longmore Dr.  At least one adult male, female and juvenile which appeared to be fed.  The other three were a bit hard to see.  They flew in, remained a few minutes and flew out as a group.  The noise they were making was more of a chatter than a call.  That would be the largest group of KP I have seen in this area, and have not seen any nearby for a few months.

PS, also Crimson rosella pair paying attention to a nesting hollow in same area.
