Hi folks:

I learned from a mate of mine that a place called Barron Junction in outback Queensland gets occasional plagues of cockatiels. He said that the air is full of them with clouds of them in the thousands.

Now that I have finished my great parrot adventure:

See here:


I would have loved to have seen this sight.

Have any of you seen this?

Thanks very much!

Hi all,
I have been to Burren Junction and one of the reasons for the large number of parrots is the railway siding and silo's. A lot of grain is to be found around the area due to accidental spillage etc.
The birds enjoy the free feed.
