My best birding experience for the year occurred in spring while riding to 
work just 10 km from the centre of Perth. That morning I awoke as usual to 
the melody of singing honey-eaters but was surpised by the sounds of about 6 
red-tailed black cockatoos which progressively destroyed a small 
bottle-brush tree just outside my bedroom window.  Within the short  
bike-ride to work I spotted about 30 white-tailed black cockatoos (at least 
2 juveniles), one pair of galahs, red-capped and Port Lincoln parrots, about 
10 rainbow bee eaters, New Holland honey-eaters, red-wattle birds and a 
kestrel.  No sparrows, starlings or Indian mynahs!
