    A Male King Parrot has joined us.  The other birds are a Crested Pigeon with its colourful touches on its wings a turtle dove & a female house sparrow. King Parrots are one of Australia's many parrot species & the male king parrot is the only one which has a completely red head. Eastern & crimson rosellas have white & blue cheeks respectively. The female king parrot is mostly a dull green even its wings. Its only red is on its lower belly.

    With a bar-shouldered dove & a house sparrow. The turqoise slashes on the king parrot's wings look blurry but that's how they are.

    You can tell this is a juvenile galah because the breast & face pink is pale & dull with some light grey feathers scattered through.

    Yes we have Big Billy the galahs seem to have now become regulars. If they act up or get noisy we'll have to chase them away as we did the little corellas when they started to crowd the seed. Trouble is the galahs seem to have scared off the eastern rosellas who still come occasionally but not as frequently or in the numbers they used to. Bruce has rationed the seed so the birds now have to work a bit harder to find it in the grass as they do in the wild. Still getting crested pigeons which is great because they had been a bit scarce around the place. Unfortunately the King Parrot hasn't returned. It may have just been passing through & came to see what was going on.
