Hi All,

I noticed Anthea's posting on New Year's day about the
Black Cockatoos (Yellow tailed) over her place near
Darebin Creek in suburban Melbourne. On the same day
here in inner northern West Brunswick I saw 10 YTB's
fly over heading north east at 10am. They too were at
low level and silent. I would have missed them
altogether had not my Magpie friends in the
schoolground nearby started making their hawk-alert
calls. I was looking all about expecting the usual
suspects (Brown Goshawk or Little Eagle) when the
Cockies swept majestically past. A very auspicious
start to the New Year bird list! (YTB's are very
uncommon in our neck of the woods) I wonder if they
were the same birds that Anthea saw, as they were
heading the right way?
