Amazing expansion in their local distribution. I'm also finding they are now one of the most common birds in my garden bird survey in Wanniassa - 6 of them yesterday in a group. Prior to this sudden influx I had a single bird some years ago for my GBS. 
So far today in the garden both rosellas, galahs, superbs, a king parrot, little corellas, sulphur-crested cockies, with rainbow lorikeets and a single yellow-tailed black cocky flying over. Just waiting for some Gang-gangs to decide Wanniassa is the place to be!

At about 8.15 this morning (13 January) about a dozen noisy Superbs, including adults and begging young, landed above us in a gum in our Duffy St garden, while we were picking plums to save them from the birds and possums. They're now one of the most common birds in and over our garden in the mornings, though they haven't yet come down to the bird baths.
