Author's notes

4 superb parrots high up, perfectly visible by eye, but apologies only had my phone camera again! Known breeding area.

Aaron this is a known foraging area of a population that breeds in Goorooyarroo Nature reserve - but is not in itself a breeding area

Ahh very good to know Michael, thanks. Should I remove the Nesting Site attribute?

Ok thanks all done.

Aaron, can you please tell me if the birds were feeding . If so on what.

Hi Chris, sorry I didn't notice them eating anything. They were up in a very high gum tree, it might have had gum nuts or something, but they were probably a tad too far up for me to tell. I didn't hear anything dropping to the ground below them either...
