Australian Mulga Parrots, N.T. Outback Australia by 

I managed to catch these lovely ground parrots whilst visiting Rainbow Valley, in the northern Territory outback Australia. The valley is a very interesting place to visit because of the outstanding Limestone outcrops weathered into many different shapes. There are flocks of colourful Budgerigars sweeping through in undulating flight but very difficult to take photos of. These Mulga parrots being ground birds are much easier but are very shy. They have a 3 note flute like song.

Camera Olympus Compact SP-500 UZ ed lens,6 pix,10 x optical,macro.

I guess you could call me a shutterbug, I am for ever looking for something to photograph, and experimenting with my camera. Colour lights up my life, children, scenery, the sea in all it’s moods,native flora & fauna etc:- Please feel free to browse through the categories in my profile.

    the bit of foliage indicates how well it can camoflarge.
    Rainbow valley suggests grey nomad country – Decades since I have seen the Budgie flocks.They would be impressive after so much rain.

  • I was thrilled with this shot, as you say betty they blend in so well. I took this last June on our way up to Darwin and then we followed the developement roads through to Boulia,Winton,Roma etc just to see the countryside after all the rain early last year. Oh but it was cold.Thank you for your comments:)Rita.
