Thanks to Ash and others for reporting these. There were 15 Swift Parrots at Negus Crescent around 8am. Plenty of other great birds around including up to 4 Superb Parrots, 2 King Parrots, 3 Rainbow Lorikeets and a Noisy Friarbird in the same flowering Ironbark outside number 8. The local Noisy Miners would every so often chase a Swift out of the tree and it would fly in a wide arc almost hitting me where I was standing across the road. The birds flew towards Hope Park around 8:15am.
I had forgotten how colourful and beautiful Swift Parrots are. An awesome experience before heading off to work.
