Heard, 11pm Sat 17 Mar; what sounded like a small flock of 3 to 4 Rosellas, calling directly overhead in rapid flight, at nighttime, suburban Brisbane (Auchenflower). We were standing outside our house observing the local Magpies roosting when this event occurred. Does anyone have any ideas what this phenomena might be? Would rosellas fly around like this at night, for example, if disturbed in their nighttime roost? Or, possibly, some other very similar sounding nocturnal bird?
