A couple of days ago I heard one at the Griffith shops. I then saw three fly over John's Firewood at Fyshwick. When I got home there were two in the Albizia over the back fence here in Narrabundah.

A lone one flying over Deakin last week and, this morning, two demolishing my Albizia in Deakin.

Since the fires I've sighted a few small groups of yellow-tailed black cockatoos flying over the city, which is always a delight. Just then I heard a call and saw a lone individual do a big circle over the city and pass not far from my window, calling the whole time and wheeling around as if it was lost. It flew off towards the ANU.
