My aviarys are under a stand of small she oak pines, a life saver in summer

If you have the space, plant a lilac tree. Fast growing and deciduous. WIN Win and the red tail blacks come and eat the seeds out of the berries. Which is a pleasure to watch, and even to listen too.

Unfortunately I'm already flat out trying to get pine needles of the roof so the rain runs off

A lilac tree? You mean, like, those petite little pink flowering trees in cottage gardens?? https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/imag ... HK4UtHZGub

Common name Cape Lilac or White Cedar Scientific Name Melia azedarach - This common tree of gardens and road verges is actually a native of the Kimberley area of Western Australia but has become naturalised in urban areas. It produces sprays of lilac flowers and masses of hard yellow berries.
We don't have Sulphur cresteds living wild on this side of the country. We have Little Corellas by the thousands, Galahs by the hundreds, and Red, white and yellow tail Blacks by the dozen.

We have yellow tailed blacks, sulphurs, little and long billed corellas and galahs. Living in the suburbs, I set up a birdfeeder since the neighbours excessively cut down trees and I get Sulphurs by the dozen, a pair of Galahs, lorikeets, crested pigeons, turtledoves and the occasional corella, rosella or escaped Alexandrine Parrot.

Yellow tails are in the hinterlands and the sunshine coasts; red tails are about 7hrs north in rockhampton. There you see large flocks of them in the suburbs feeding on the sheoak trees
