THE BIRD WATCHING COMMUNITY
They seem to settle in groups of three or six and use the same spot in particular trees each night although, that’s difficult to judge accurately as they’re not banded and settled as darkness increases. There are about 120 birds that roost in the Reserve and also use the Kensington Bushland as a food source.
If you have time, take a few friends with you and watch these lovely birds fly in against the sunset sky and call loudly as they settle for the night. It’s a rare treat and very previous. As the population in the Town increases, safe spaces for our cockies are essential. Go and say hello!
