The Australian King Parrot is a beautiful bird. We don't usually see them around our home. I have seen them before in National Parks but not in the suburbs. So it was a big surprise when six of them landed on our deck the other morning. We don't have any feeders or feed any of the birds or local wildlife as our wildlife experts strongly advise that we don't feed our native animals. It is because they stop learning to forage for themselves and can suffer if the artificial source of food stops being available, like when we go on holidays or move house.
There were 3 couples. They are very timid so I took all these shots through the glass windows trying not to scare them away.
The King Parrot is a broad tailed parrot. The male has a red head and chest.
The female is mostly green with red
