The strange thing is I have never seen this type of bird before. It looks like a parrot but with a stubby tail and a pale blue/grey head. I think it had red on its belly as well as yellow.
It is much bigger than a Lorikeet. I have checked in both my bird books and can't find one with a tail like that, a yellow stripe on its wings and a pale head. So if there are any birders out there who can help with identification it would be appreciated.
