Interesting. That would tend to make sense. The birds I see are most definitely NOT escapee's.

They have nested at Farrer ridge, Callum brae and wanniassa hills reserves in recent years, possibly also Mt Taylor

OK. I think Rainbow Lorikeet's are becoming more common/prevalent in the north Tuggeranong vicinity.
Regular sightings near Erindale shops, along roads (where the Eucalyptus tree's are planted along roads) in Waniassa and Kambah.
I've held off on reportings of them, well, that and many other things really. Anyway.

Erindale - Up to 8 or so at times on many more than 1 occasion
Waniassa - More than 4 a few times
Kambah - 8 or more on the move at times
      .... And now, seemingly a resident pair that move throughout my general home observation area during the day.

Where they will nest or may be nesting, I have no idea. Mt Taylor would be competitive.
