Author's notes

I saw a group of six Superb Parrots and then I saw another group later on of 12. The larger group may have contained the original six but I am not sure as there was about 20 minutes between those two sightings. The group of six flew into the area where they landed in a tree. I could not get close to them. The group of 12 emerged from a different wooded area but headed back in the direction the six had originally come from.
