Red-rumps in the grass

Tra la la la la la

It's a Van Morrison thing.

I'm sure there's a rule against dandelions in bird photography, but fortunately I have never looked into such rules and I present to you the brightly coloured male Red-rumped Parrot, on top, and the drab and wretched female below. These are lovely parrots and I see them much more in summer than spring or winter. I assume that's because the young are now independent.


  1. I still get a thrill seeing red rumps- which is nice they're quite common around here too.

  2. Yeah they are nice and petite. My autofocus on my camera has a hard time distingushing the female from the surrounding grass.
