A flock of about 30 YTBC just flew past my office window at Flinders University just south of Adelaide. They are frequenting the Radiata Pines in the gorge bordering the Uni.
They make a very impressive sight from our Common Room, which has a view to Gulf St Vincent, as they fly across the campus at least once a day. Even the non-birders are impressed.
There's been a flock of about 100 flying over Reynella (a bit further south) the last few weeks, feeding from the pine trees and the almond orchards. Half a dozen in an almond tree makes the tree look very small!
