This colourful inhabitant of open grasslands is aptly named the Red-rumped Parrot (Psephotus haematonotus). Seldom seen far from water courses, this slender parrot is the subject of our #50 Bird Photography Challenge.
You can hear it before you see it. It is a big parrot, dark at a distance, but with bright yellow markings as it gets close. It is the spectacular Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo and the subject of our #43 Bird Photography Challenge.
An unmistakable parrot with its bright colourful plumage, the Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) is an engaging bird: active, noisy, conspicuous, even belligerent. This palette of colour is the dazzling subject for our #5 Bird Photography Challenge.
