Those irresistible ‘Swifties’

The Swift Parrots around Newstead continue to delight. This morning I came across several small flocks in the area between Spring Hill and Mia Mia Tracks [location]. They were feeding in small groups of 2-5 birds, mainly on Red Box buds. All up I saw probably 30 different individuals. Some were only a few metres from the ground, allowing me to approach quite closely. They were a brilliant sight, on a beautiful, still and crisp morning.
