Bonus Birds

Late yesterday afternoon I was sitting in the lounge room when I spotted two King Parrots in our Old Man Saltbush. It appeared that they were having a nibble of the buds at the top of the branchlets.

As the light was failing it was difficult to get a good shot. I managed to get close enough to get a photo of this bird just after the other had flown.

Probably a juvenile male King Parrot, the red feathers are growing in over its whole chest.
