Australian King Parrot
Before I started looking closely at the birds in my area last month, I would have predicted that I'd see as many King Parrots as Crimson and Eastern Rosellas. This has not been borne out. Those other birds are much more commonly seen. In October I saw a group of King Parrots just once; early one morning, in bushland and no others till today, so it was nice to see four King Parrots feeding on plums this morning. This female was so content, she did not budge even when a couple on bikes with two dogs, also stopped to look and chat.
