Pretty Parrot…

Crimson Rosella eating

Crimson Rosella eating

Australia has been fittingly described as the Land of Parrots.

From cockatoos in white or black to Lorikeets and budgerigars: we have some extraordinarily engaging types.

Here’s a photograph I took of a Crimson Rosella as he was gathering nectar at the local park.

    You’re clever Margaret, you know you’ll always catch me with birds. This one is fantastic, such beautiful colours. I love the way his large clawed foot so delicately holds the flower at just the right angle for him to take the nectar.

      So glad you approve, David. 🙂
      Took more photos this morning, so when download time comes you won’t be disappointed. 🙂

    Love the richness of his colors and you are certainly blessed to have so many to see and enjoy

      Yes, I do agree, Odie. We’re so lucky to live near a bushland park that is a sanctuary to many beautiful birds. 🙂
