I see them reasonably frequently in South Melbourne (Dorcas St, Moray St and
Bank St) too. I would be surprised if they weren't in Docklands, Albert
Park, Middle Park, Albert Park Lake and even in the Royal Botanical Gardens

   Hi Peter
   We've been seeing them on and off around Port Melbourne for a few years
   now.  So I wouldn't be surprised if they are coming through Docklands
   as well.

   Last week I heard a Pied Currawong calling near the casuarina
   plantation in Navigation Drive in Docklands, and just now one landed on
   the roof of the builidng opposite where I work.
   I submitted a Birdline for last week's bird, but it was rejected on the
   grounds that PC sightings around the CBD are common now. Fair enough,
   especially as they've been regularly seen around the zoo for years now,
   but it was my first sighting of them in Docklands that I've had in the
   6 years since we moved here.
   I'm wondering if this is just part of a general spreading of their
   range, or a sign that the trees in Docklands, most of which are less
   than 10 years old, are maturing to the point that they are now
   attractive to them. Or possibly just that residents are now feeding
   them. Have others seen them in Docklands before?
