Thankfully for a bird with a restricted range it is still common - in fact in some places in Tasmania it is the commonest parrot. This being said, most of the view I got were of birds on the wing!
This individual is clearly in much better shape that the one the collided with our window.
I took these shots through the open passenger window of my car as I was parked in the middle of the road. Its a good job that there is not very much traffic on Bruny Island.
Like most parrots they do seem to have the look of a character about them. This bird was very pleased to show off both profiles. There were two other birds in some longer grass in a shallow ditch at the base of the fence, but they did not want to cooperate.
