I was at Westerfolds Park (Templestowe) this morning and the amount of
Lorikeets concerns me. I checked my Gould Leauge Urban Birds Volume and
noticed that Rainbow Lorikeets were 'accidental' circa 1960's. On a
personal observation level, they were nowhere near as common 10 years ago.
Any suggestions for the sharp increase?
PS: Also saw a pair of King Parrots mating and saw a Corella (which I
thought were rare), although I couldn't identify whether it was Little or
Long-Billed, only heard its call and saw it in the distance.
