The Red-rumped Parrot (Psephotus haematonotus) is a common enough parrot in my part of the world. I often see them in small flocks on sports ovals, golf courses and other such grassy places. Despite being rather colourful, they can be hard to spot in longer grass - and many of the times I see them they are heading off into the distance just after I have flushed them!
However, when I was at Patchewollock a month or so back a flock came into the bird table / water feature in the yard. I never thought otherwise, but they are a wonderful looking little bird - and for once in these pictures you can see why how they got their common name.
