Thu 21 Jul Crimson Rosella Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia
I saw this bird feeding alongside a Ringnecks at Murdoch University. I took a photo as I have seen a lot of birds, coming from a semi rural area and had NEVER seen one like this in Western Australia. From research on the net it looks like it might be a Crimson Rosella which are not supposed to be present here in the west.

An unprecedented 100+ Swift Parrots were observed feeding in eucalypts at Boggy Creek this morning. Such a large number has not been recorded by EGBOC members previously and follows on from earlier but much smaller numbers noted in the same area late last week.
12 EGBOC members per Len Axen
