We’re encountering these parrots more frequently as we travel through New South Wales. At Gloucester, now, hunkering down in our camper-trailer at a powered site. Our mobile internet is working perfectly, and I’ll give you an update later of where we’ve been since we left home. Lately, I’ve just managed a few Facebook posts to let family know where we are.
According to Birds In Backyards, the male Australian King Parrot are the only Australian parrots with a completely red head. The female has a green head.
The ones pictured here kept an eye out for meal times at every camping site! Perched on the roof of the tent, on the open canopy door of the 4WD, on the back of an unoccupied chair, they missed little.
I better go have a look outside, for the wind is increasing, and the rain. I regret not putting up the proper awning and walls – electing the quicker erection of the gazebo. Fortunately, I pegged it down well, but I’m about to see how it handles water. Other people in the caravan park are poking at theirs with brooms to dislodge pools of water.
Thanks for looking at my pictures.
