Swift Parrot

It was high up in a dead tree, not keeping company with the Rainbow Lorikeets. After it flew I could not relocate it. There are quite a few flowering ironbarks in the area near the school...

Average Quality

I thought I was photographing the local musk lorikeet (in VERY poor light), but when it flew off, a series of high pitched but very clear notes (not the high pitched lorikeet call of the Musk). When I later looked at photo, it's obviously a Swift Parrot. Yellow edges on the red around face, and the red is a quite different pattern to the red on Musk Lorikeet.. Some red fainly visible under tail, faint blue tinge to the green behind eye.

3
Crimson Rosella
7
Eastern Rosella
30
Rainbow Lorikeet

conservative estimate. Groups in at least five separate trees (flowering ironbarks)

15
Noisy Miner

estimate. There are at least three active nests. Birds feeding young in two of them as I watched
