The Pink Cockatoos are often seen feeding in the International Gardens between Warrendine and Franklin or Machin Park between Franklin and Gardiner and sometimes around Blackmans Swamp near the netball courts. The Striped Honeyeater usually nests in the Strawberry Tree in our front yard but I have not had any sightings this Spring/Summer. There have been what I think a couple of Yellow Finches in the same tree but they don't appear from their dense leaves covering or sit still long enough for a proper observation. I have tried putting seed down but the starlings get it before they make an appearance. A flock of about 20 Cockatoos just flew over making a great noise. Usually hear them before you see them.
