Australia is indeed the ‘land of parrots’ and none come more glorious than our common local, the Red-rumped Parrot Psephotus haematonotus. If this species was rare or endangered it would be regarded with the same reverence as some of its more celebrated relatives. At this time of year they can be seen in small flocks feeding on fallen grass seeds or perched in prominent spots, like these ones on power lines. Courtship is beginning, so you’ll notice a tight bond forming between the pairs, and some aggression if any over step the mark.
