Mon 22Superb Parrot
Bugilbone Road, ca. 10 km south of Burren Junction
After seeing 2 long-tailed parrots flying across the road, I managed to find first a few singles, a few pairs, and finally a flock of 22 Superb Parrots feeding on the fruit of African Boxthorn and on lerps in roadside remnant eucalypt woodland with poor undergrowth (noxious weeds). For the record: Superb Parrots are usually in the area when there are grass seeds, but the region is now officially in the worst drought in 120 years and there are no grass seeds to be found, because there is no grass. This is my first sighting of the species in years and the largest flock I have found in more than 10 years. I had already counted 12 individuals (of which I lost sight again) before encountering the flock. If the 12 did not form part of the flock, there were more than 22 Superb Parrots. eBird checklist

Musk, Rainbow, Scaly-breasted and Little Lorikeets, Noisy Friarbirds
Coffs Coast
Mass flowering of Blackbutt and Forest Red Gum from Coffs Harbour north to Corindi Beach attracting thousands of lorikeets and Noisy Friarbirds. Impossible to accurately estimate numbers but I would hazard a guess that there would be >10,000 birds in this area at present. In just 15 minutes late on Sunday afternoon I counted well over 500 Musk Lorikeets flying south over the Arrawarra rest area. I’d think there’s a good chance of Swift Parrots being in the area somewhere.

Bundjalung National Park--Woody Head Iluka
Three early arrivals of Rainbow-bee-eaters observed in banksia and wattles about I km south of Woody head campground and about 100 metres from the beach. (Moderator's Note: There have been a few bee-eater reports from northern NSW, per eBird and Birdata).

Thu 18highlightWhite-winged Chough
Truganina, Wyndham (Werribee)
One White-winged Chough recorded alongside Skeleton Creek between Sussex Court and St Nicholas Court. This is my first record in over 35 years of this species in this area. A very unusual record away from Serendip Sanctuary, You Yangs and Brisbane Ranges.
