Hi birders

This morning as I was chaperoning the kids to school by bike I heard a
single Swift Parrot call on three occasions in the Yarra Bend area.  It
was possibly the same bird(s) three times, or three different birds -
hard to tell as I was concentrating on keeping the kids from being run

The location was along Heidelberg Road, between Yarra Bend Road and the
Merri Creek - Clifton Hill (inner northern Melbourne).  Once the bird(s)
might have been in flight, but the other two were perched I think.  The
call is a dead giveaway!
