Hi All

As I left the campus for Black Mountain this afternoon, I saw a flock of six yellow tailed black cockatoos feeding in a pine tree on campus, more or less opposite the entrance to the botanical gardens. This is a new campus bird for me, and makes the eight species of parrot of have seen on the ANU acton campus: sulphur crested cockatoo; gang-gang; galah; yellow tailed back cockatoo; king parrot, crimson rosella, eastern rosella, red-rumped parrot. This stikes me as an impressive list: is there any campus better endowed with parrot fauna than this? (especially as i think glossy blacks have been seen here too, though not be me)
