The King of Parrots

20 Dec

Don’t you agree that these spectacular birds well deserve their title: King Parrots?

Their rich red and  green of the plumage is so eye-catching and cheerful. It’s always a delight to catch sight of these parrots. Rarely, fortune smiles on me so much that a really wonderful photographic opportunity presents itself. But a few weeks ago, it did!

Another wonderful parrot that I sometimes see in the park is the Crimson Rosella. The most striking difference between it and the King Parrot lies in the colour of the wings, which are a darkish blue.

What an Eye-Catcher!

What an eye-catcher!

Don’t you agree that  Crimson Rosellas rank among the world’s most stunning birds?

Today I spotted a pair that were searching for food beside the river bank. I could scarcely take my eyes off them!

Here’s a photo of a magnificently-feathered  specimen.

Please enjoy it!

A Pretty Pair….

One of my favourite sights in the bush are the King Parrots. Usually, I spot the magnificent male of the species, all alone. But this time my luck was in, since there he perched, high on a tree, not so very far away from his mate.

Far Away Thoughts

8 Aug

I wonder what thoughts go through the mind of a bird?

Recently I observed this beautiful King Parrot, seemingly contemplating its next move.

From tall Gum Trees to sweet Wattle to the creeping Hardenbergia: there are sights and scents everywhere.

Let’s not forget the sounds: screeching Cockatoos, singing magpies, squawking lorikeets.

Into the distance....a King parrot wonders....
