Basically the same as below.


Attending KMC again today, at 5 p.m. I only actually saw one but could clearly hear there were more Swift Parrots at this site.


Also 4 Superb Parrots there yesterday plus another seen flying over my house on Monday.

Attending KMC again today, at 8:25 a.m. I again saw the flock of (this time) about 30 Swift Parrots at this site. Although when I came out 15 minutes later and waited around for 10 minutes I didn’t see them again. This time however the whole of Jenke Circuit Kambah is a long queue of cars waiting to attend the reestablished Covid testing station. Although the relevant carpark is available, now is probably not a good time to assemble to see these birds.

I first reported Swift Parrots near Kambah Medical Centre, at the bottom of Jenke Circuit Kambah on 20 May, which resulted in many people going to see them. Going there again today at about 9:30 a.m. I observed a group of about 10 Swift Parrots flying around there and calling, behavior pretty much the same as before.
