A flock of Red-rumped Parrots

Red-rumped Parrots, Lake Hattah

Sydney Trip June 2011

After lunch on the last day of our trip home from Sydney we drove around the Nature Drive in Hattah-Kulkyne National Park. This drive follows the shore of Lake Hattah and several other lakes. Part way along I spotted a flock of about 20 Red-rumped Parrots. They flew from the grass where they had been feeding and perched in one of the trees near the road.

While it is not a brilliant photo it does illustrate the beautiful green and yellow colours of the male birds.

    Hi Louise,

    Thanks for your kind comments. It was great to see this small flock together. Such colourful birds.

    More recently I’ve been seeing four of them on my morning walk, barely 500m from home. I usually don’t carry my camera on these walks so I might have the change my habit.
