Author's notes

Getting back to Hughes I saw a small flock of three Superb Parrots sitting in a tree of a house that backs onto the Hughes nature corridor to the Federal Golf course. My presence may have made them feel uneasy as, although they stayed for a little while, they did fly off to taller trees further west.
