The elms are fruiting around town and the parrots are enjoying them. especially the Superb Parrots. I saw two pairs of Superbs eating quietly in an elm outside ABS House in Benjamin Way in Belconnen at lunchtime and about 8 Superbs in some elms in Giralang. In Giralang they were joined by Crimson Rosellas, Eastern Rosellas and Red-rumps. In previous years I have seen flocks of about 50 Superb Parrots in Benjamin Way. I didn't stay around long enough today to check all the trees for parrots.
The sex ratio looked about even, rather than male dominating, so they haven't started brooding yet.
