Although officially listed as common in our local park, these magnificent parrots make themselves scarce when I’m around.

So it is a real treat to be able to capture the image of this beautiful male.

Enjoy!

Focus on Bird: Australian King Parrot

I saw a pair of these stunningly-beautiful birds this morning. Even at a distance, the male’s wonderful colours shone out.

The male of the species is much brighter in colour than its mate. The male’s bright red feathers are a joy to see. The female, though, is still a lovely bird. Her subtle greens and red must surely help her camouflage.
