Still being seen regularly in Wanniassa. My GBS site had a group of nine flying over yesterday, and I hear them most days up at the primary school. Neighbour John  photographed one at his bird bath recently.

And Northside too, 5 superb parrots in O'Connor.  They come each day to a large ash tree and I saw them today eating berries from a camphor laurel. 

Also here this week, a pair of Spotted Doves, and a bunch of Noisy Miners giving a Wattle Bird a very hard time attacking it.

A few still round, ANZAC Day was the last day when I heard them constantly. Perhaps they are roosting elsewhere ea and coming back to the area in the day. 


This male was feeding on the ground nr Hughes Primary with Galahs. It was so tame I took this photo with my phone from 2 meters away.
