Hi Birders,

While the Swift Parrots have decined around Bateau Bay where the Swamp Mahogany has almost finished flowering, they appeared to have move across to the Budgewoi area where the Forest Red Gum is flowering well in the streets, backyards and foreshore reserves. Today I located 28+ Swift Parrots in Buff Point Drive, between Matumba Ave and Nacooma Ave, but particularly in the foreshore reserve at the end of Matumba Avenue. The trees near the car park where the Swift Parrots were seen, were the very same trees used in 2004! All up I saw and heard 28+ but there had to be many more. The area was alive with Little Lorikeets (commonest lorikeet) , Musk and Rainbows, and during this time a Sea-Eagle, Whistling Kite, and a Black Kite flew over, the latter causing much concern to the Lorikeets and Noisy Miners, not so the Eagle or the Whistling Kite.
