Red-winged Parrot
Guerie Cemetery
Single adult male flying down the lane next to the cemetery. Exactly the same thing happend on 12 November last year. Maybe there is a small resident population in Geurie right on the edge of the specie's range.

Sun 21Barn owl
Bayview Golf Course
Waiting to tee off on the 16th hole, I saw a palm tree near the water. Having seen barn owls roosting in palms in Centennial Park, I thought I’d wander over and have a look in this one on the off chance that there’d be one here too. Sure enough, I walked over, looked up, and immediately saw this fellow looking back at me. Poor photo, taken with phone, attached.

Sulphur Crested Cockatoo
Corner of Carnochans and Bartys Rd, Myrtle Creek
Two pink Sulphur Crested Cockatoos were seen at the corner of Carnochans and Bartys Rd at 10:30 on the 21st of October. While driving, both my passenger and I noticed a group of three cockatoos feeding on the ground. Two of the three had a pale pink colouring to their plumage with the exception of the crest. This was not a trick of the light, nor was it due to binocular colour fringing as we had seen them well with our own eyes. The two pink cockatoos were also well contrasted against the third, which was plain white. In addition, a bird was seen on the 8th of September with the same colourings on a property just off Sutton Grange Rd, south of yesterdays sighting. Similarly, the bird was surrounded by a flock of stock-standard white Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, and caught the attention of both observers as we were driving. The bird was observed both close and distantly, as well as in flight, though not photographed. My first thoughts were that the birds had been exposed to some kind of agricultural chemical, however the colour was incredibly uniformed and suggested pigmentation. Perhaps this is evidence of a rare gene allele for feather pigment in this population group? More photos are available on request.
