Interesting occurrence tonight in Eastern fringe suburbs of Melbourne.   My 
daughter and I had to bandage one of our horses late this afternoon in a 
paddock at the back of our property.  We had to actually move the horse away 
from the fence, into the middle of the paddocks, as a flock of Yellow-tailed 
Black-cockatoos were in the pines overhead launching VERY hard pine cones down 
to the ground.  Once of them that hit just before we moved would have easily 
given us a BIG headache but we were more concerned about our mare being 
spooked.    My daughter and I both noticed 2 separate instances of what seemed 
to be young YTBCs being fed?    Would this be right in the middle of winter.   
Interestingly, we also had a small flock of Gang-gangs fly through too, which 
are not such a regular happening.    And we had the regular kangaroo mob 
surrounding us too, seems an awful lot of young ones about too.   Not bad for 
somewhere 30 or so mins out of Melbourne!
