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!
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!
Magnificent Crimson Rosella
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.

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….
The bush is alive!
