Evening all,

Thanks to all those who replied to my email asking for information on
localities for Gang-gang Cockatoos and Superb Parrots. The
birder/photographer from WA managed to see and photograph two Gang-gangs
at Burton and Garran Halls at the ANU this morning. There were several
others in the vicinity and we are going back tomorrow morning , this
time taking some Sunflower seed to try and entice them to come a bit
closer. It appears that they are now only fed on an irregular basis. We
also found some Superb Parrots in the car park at the AIS, including at
least two full plumaged adult males that cooperated very nicely thank you!

It just goes to show what a very useful group that COG (and others) can be.

The downside of the day in the ANBG was the large number of Noisy Miners
hanging around the Eucalypt Lawn. Thre racket they made when a Brown
Goshawk flew over was deafening. Highlights for us over the week were an
very nice Australian (Spotted) Crake at Kelly's Swamp and a Black Falcon
harrassing about 1000 Common Starlings at the Trucking Yard Lane "feed
lot". Unfortunately he (?) wasn't successful in his .endeavours but it
was spectacular to watch. There were 29 Plumed Whistling Ducks on the
regular dam.

Once again, thanks to all.
