Paid a quick visit this morning.  Apart from being the ACT’s dog-walking capital, the periphery of Mount Rogers is well equipped with fruit trees, which at 3 points were getting the attention of the parrots.  As the cherry growers of Young know well, this species likes a bit of fruit, probably a source of moisture in dry weather too.  Like lorikeets, they seem to express the juice between tongue and bill.

Good morning


During our regular circumnavigation of Mt Rogers this morning I saw dozens of superb parrots including many youngsters in the green space to the south of the Wickens Place carpark and to the east of the well-named Bird Place in Flynn. Lots of short flights accompanied by calling mostly in what I assume to be family parties of three individuals. Worth a look if you are in the area, particularly in the mornings.
