Yesterday in Mulgoa Valley, six YTBCs were screeching and wildly flying into 
and around a Radiata pine whose cones were providing their lunch. 
Investigating, there were four (4) Sparrowhawks noisily attacking the 
cockatoos, which after about five minutes departed. 
Couldn’t tell age or sex of Sparrowhawks but presumably they were two families, 
unless there was a single clutch of two or three with one or both parents ? Any 
suggestions ?
