Two sightings at Prospect Street

Since 1991, these magnificent birds have been annual visitors to Toowoomba and surrounds in fluctuating numbers and for varying lengths of time. The availability of fruiting White Cedar (Melia azerderach) dictate their local movements but how and to what extent is unclear.

Let's collectively get a better idea on their annual numbers, daily patterns of movement and local distribution. How far east do they venture each year? Do they ever reach Ipswich and Brisbane? Provide the date and time, number of birds, exact location, and what they were doing e.g. feeding in white cedar, roosting, flying east.

Two sightings at Prospect Street

14th Feb
At 11am approx we had 3 RTBC land in tree corner of Prospect and Jellicoe.
They stayed for approx 1/2 hour then flew towards Picnic Point.
At approx 4pm same day we had 10 RTBC fly over heading in the direction of Picnic Point.
I wonder if they are the ones Rod Hobson saw later on .
