On the subject of Psittaciformes on the ground we had a flock of about 12 Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos on the block this morning.  At one point 7 of them were walking around on a bit of swampy ground, which is not a behaviour I'd expect of them when there are pine trees to sit in (and cones to drop on innocent dog-walkers).

seems to be a group of about half a dozen around regularly.  Today I went outside to get more wood for the fire and found three in my back garden - appeared to be eating seeds on the unmown grass/weeds. One refused to move even when I walked within two metres of it to get to the wood shed.  Up to six seen on the ground at the end of the cul-de-sac most days, or in the eucs at the Wanniassa Hills Primary.
