Yesterday (Tues 12 August) we had about 30 Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos
flying upstream along the Darebin Creek Valley and passing through our
backyard (we're downstream from the Heidelberg Rd Bridge). They gathered
in a nearby pinetree and then moved on, calling loudly, around
lunchtime. Probably the same mob as that seen at the Merri. Earlier this
winter they were seen in similar numbers, but quite often we see only
half a dozen.
