Actually, Common Mynas do this as well around our way. I wonder if you can get an enormous cannon net to go over the whole tree...

Dear all,

I was at the Chifley Hotel in Penrith for a couple of nights a fortnight ago and on the first night just on dusk, I came out of the hotel to be greeted by the most unearthly cacophony that at first I thought was some ear-splitting metal working being done somewhere nearby. It then became obvious it was coming from hundreds of Rainbow Lorikeets, settling down for the night in the trees around the hotel. When I came outside again about half an hour later with darkness approaching, they had settled down to the occasional twittering!
