With the mainland sitings of Swift Parrots, one
could reasonably expect Winter is not far off.
To back this up...3 groups of Bee-eaters seen
hightailing it north over the Durikai SF (45kms west of Warwick, Sth QLD).
Total birds seen 50, but more heard.
No Koels here for 2 wks, and the Pied Currawongs
are steadily increasing in number.
A flock of 1500+ Little Corellas has been in town
for 6 weeks or so and there are plenty of "pruned" trees about as a result.
The continuing dry may result in the loss of a tree
Methinks Winter will be upon us sooner than last
year and might stay a little longer.
From behind the bino's.
