Parrot magic

No matter where you go around Newstead you’ll enjoy the glorious colours and engaging behaviour of our local parrots.

We get a nice selection visiting the bird baths around the house, while last night I marvelled at flocks of pink and grey Galahs wheeling against a sombre sky on the Moolort Plains (click here for some more images).

  1. Geoff may I send these photos to my niece in Holland please?
    She would enjoy that.
    Thank you

  2. Geoff, for me one of the most magical few minutes of a wonderful trip back in 2001 was watching a flock of Galahs wheeling against a darkening sky in the brilliant light from the red sunset over the lake at Hillston in western N.S.W. .
