One thirsty parrot

Mallee Ringneck Parrot

Mallee Ringneck Parrot

This week I’ve migrated from my office to our sun room because of the heat. The office isn’t air conditioned and the sun room is lovely.

This gives me the opportunity to keep an eye on several of our bird baths.  During the hot weather the bird baths play an important role in attracting bird life to our garden.

Yesterday I had excellent views of one of our resident Mallee Ringneck parrots. It had come in to have a good drink. This one didn’t have a bath as they sometimes do. Quite a few species really start splashing the water everywhere, just like a mini-sprinkler. Don’t they know we have strict watering restrictions here in South Australia?

    One thirsty parrot. Who does this sound like something from a children’s counting book?

    Ringnecks look as thogh they’ve been coloured in by someone who wanted to use the whole pack of pencils.

    Thanks Eileen – we are fortunate to have a family of these beautiful parrots resident in our garden. They are frequent visitors to our bird baths which are located within easy range of my camera.
