I tried this morning with no luck. As far as I know all the sightings have been in a big flowering Eucalyptus tree behind the Cafe. I got a brief sighting of one yesterday afternoon. The call is higher and different to the Rainbow Lorikeets. More like a Little Lorikeet. There's a few other trees flowering nearby.

Dear all

I’ve seen the buzz around the purple-crowned lorikeet on Facebook, but haven’t had the chance to get out to Bowen Park yet due to work and family commitments. Anyone have the inside scoop on whether it may still pop up this afternoon in that area, or is it likely to have moved on by now?
