Superb Parrots at Barmah Forest

A hunt for Superb Parrots on Saturday afternoon (3 Oct)took us north along 
Yelma North
Rd to Darlows Gate into the Forest. After some birding hereabouts, we decided 
to follow
the boundary track in a generally westward direction. As we turned the car into 
track, at about 5 pm (Eastern Standard Time), a flock of about 12 very 
slender, long-tailed green parrots shot past. At least one had a yellow face.  
A few
minutes later came another flock of eight parrots. Definitely nothing like any 
Australian parrot I have seen. They seemed to be heading south.  I don't often 
get a new
tick these days, so my thanks to Keith Stockwell of BOCA Echuca Branch for
