Author's notes

I saw less Superb Parrots today than the day before but that does not mean there were less there, only that I saw less, as I certainly heard birds all over the place. I saw one group of four fly off towards Red Hill. I saw some birds feeding on the ground early so I focussed my photography on them for a while. When I headed further along the strands of trees I could see and hear birds in the trees all around.
