Surely several flocks . They were surely simultaneous flocks around
Tuggeranong, Lanyon, Woden, Narrabundah, etc. Maybe the COG database will
show - if people have been recording it and someone wants to search on
dates. Maybe some mixing, I don't know........

That may well be the case. There is certainly a flock in the south from
what everybody seems to be reporting. It seems that they are far less
frequently seen in the north of Canberra. But they don¹t all flock. I see
them regularly in the inner north in small groups of 3 or 4. As far north
as Gungahlin I have only seen them in small mixed flocks with SC Cockatoos.
