Records from the other side of the Bay - at Ricketts Point or nearby inland as far as Clonmore St - of obscure MuskX crosses from 1997 to 2002 but none more recently.

Most thought here to be crosses with Scaly-breasted (which hybridises here with Rainbow but originally in 1970s said to have bred with Little Lorikeet!??). Musk(?X) seen entering Scaly nest holes etc.

Don't worry about their origin - just tease people who think all the birds are in the books.
