This is a Mulga Parrot (Psephotellus varius) a wonderfully colourful parrot that came down to the water point outside the hide I had access to in the Mallee in NW Victoria.
The bird had a very good wash, and then sat on a low twig to get its act together and generally tidy up its plumage. I have to say I like this set of pictures.
In three weeks it will be 500 weeks since I started Wild Bird Wednesday - which feels pretty crazy I have to say. I plan to do a 'special request' post for that week - so, if there are any birds you would like me to feature mention it in the comments over the next couple of posts, and I will see what I can do!
