User's notes

Little flock of Swift Parrots feeding on flowering ironbarks in the plantation near the fire shed. Very exciting to see some more swifties on the CSU campus. Only got a few half decent photos given how overcast it was. The second pic was brightened considerably to get a clearer view of the birds.
