User's notes

Looking up into the trees there were these oval dark green things - sleeping and preening Swift Parrots. Only a few were active. Continually hunted by Noisy Miners and a handful of Red Wattlebirds they eventually all took flight over the back somewhere. They were noisy. A few were missing their tail feathers making them appear odd like Little Lorikeets!
