King parrots

I don't know what woke us up at 8 am on Sunday, but whatever it was, we were grateful! On opening curtains to see what caused us to wake so suddenly, we saw a pair of King Parrots on the feeding station. Ken opened the door very quietly, and they didn't seem to worry, so he was able to put some more seed out there while they sat and watched. The male bird has the bright red chest, with a dash of light green on his dark green wing. Lovely!

  1. King Parrots ae such beautiful birds, with such vivid colours ... they are usually very timid. We befriended a few when we had our van up at Bonnie Doon.
