User's notes

Very excited to find a flock of 12 swift parrots on the CSU campus! Got a great look at the little guys. A couple were getting chased by the odd noisy miner, but mostly they were perched in a group in a casuarina, occasionally flitting to and fro to other trees.

wow. That is so many to see at once. I'm totally envious! Can the public enter the CSU campus to look at birds?
