Good Afternoon,

I do see and hear this species quite regularly in and over Melton and Melton
South, technically suburbs of Melbourne.
They do breed in locations such as along Toolern Creek and in the Hannah
Watts Reserve where remnant River Red Gums exist.
In surrounding area such as Mount Cottrell and Exford they are often seen in
groups of at least 12 birds and are a common breeding resident in the
Eynesbury and Pinkerton Woodlands.
I do also see birds quite regularly alongside Macarthur Road in Royal Park

Kind Regards,

Micah Kawalek
