More parrots this week. Was playing with the kids this weekend when I noticed a flock of parrots on the oval - that's a sports ground for those of you not fully conversant with Australian jargon!
These parrots are common on sports fields, golf courses and other patches of grass - so its no surprise that their other name is Grass Parrot. You can see the males red-rump in the front of this picture. The greyish bird in the background is the female.
You can find more world birds here, and you can see the latest post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the page.
Enjoy the birds.
