Author's notes

First spotted 2 Glossies in a feed tree (female and Juvenille) heard another 2 in a tree across the road. I think it was a male and another juvenille? One of the males flew off and joined the female and juvenille that we first spotted and stayed with them. We could hear more glossies up the road. I could see three through the trees but not clearly but definitely saw three fly off, they had a juvenile with them. We walked back and spotted another 3? just past the original 3. They were further in the bush behind a fence, one of them was a juvenile as it was begging. Another 2 landed in a feed tree across the road from us. It appeared to be 2 males? I have sent all photos to Glossies in the mist
