Following on from Philip's report from yesterday, I visited Jenke Circuit from 11:00 this morning and heard the sound of Swift Parrots from the moment I got out of my car.  As well as being vocal, they were moving around a lot, being chased by various other species of birds, but were visible in the eucalypts within the carpark and those between Jenke Circuit and Drakeford Drive.  I couldn't get an exact count of the number of birds, but I think it would be around the same amount that Philip estimated.  They looked to be feeding on lerps, but there are a number of ironbarks starting to flower in nearby Marconi Crescent and possibly more to flower soon in Summerland Circuit, so there is a potential large food supply nearby if they can locate those trees.
