HOME - KING PARROTS - 8 NOVEMBER 2016

We had visitors today. They were no lethal and rather pretty... The Australian King Parrot - Alisterua scapularis.


Male Australian King-Parrots are the only Australian parrots with a completely red head. Females are similar to males except that they have a completely green head and breast. Both sexes have a red belly and a green back, with green wings and a long green tail. King parrots are normally encountered in pairs or family groups.


Our visitors were two males, so we assumed they were the males in a family group.


They are such a pretty bird that, I feel, give off an aurora of calmness.
