They could be seen briefly from the elevated walkway between High Court and NGA.  They were chased off by Noisy Miners. An NGA miner gathering below.  I then took my visitors to AIS to find Superb Parrots.  We found them but they were chased off by Noisy Miners.

Great stuff, David!


Has anyone seen the Swifts at the NGA today? I wonder if they may have moved on.


I saw them lunchtime yesterday (without camera) but could not see them when I was there (with camera) between about 8.15 and 8.30 this morning.

Once again thanks to the initial spotters/ reporters, a bird I've been wanting to film for sometime.  Not easy given their liking for the high canopy.  Feeding and sitting still.... filmed on 24 and 25 Sept 2018



For those who like Tasmanian migratory parrots, there is also my film of Orange-bellied Parrots at for those who have not seen it.
