Author's notes

I saw more Superb Parrots in an adjacent wooded area to my previous sighting. Including a group of ten that flew off to the north, but I could still see and hear more in the wooded area. They know there is water available. Even when I was approaching and they flew off; when I stayed still they returned to drink again. As the photo shows, there were not many males in the group.
