King Parrot in our front yard.

There are a pair of these King Parrots that turn up every now and then to snack at our feeding station.  We've seen them around in other people's yards, so we think they are local residents who do a little tour of the bird friendly houses around here.  They are quite tame, and probably used to having their photo taken, as he didn't even flinch when the flash went off.  The last  photo here was taken when he came within a foot of me to perch on the fence, but unfortunately I'd been messing around with the setttings on my camera, so the colour is all wrong....waaaah!


  1. Just beautiful! I'll try to get some photos of my Orioles. It's a little tricky through the window. Pam
