Red Rump Parrots, ground birds, have glowing colour. Adelaide. by

So richly coloured these lovely small parrots feed on grass and low herbage seeds, native to Australia they leave us in winter when it’s cold but return in Spring. They love the bird bath especially on hot summer days. They mate for life and the female is a very pale green rather nondescript.
The flowering Pink Wisteria tree (Robinea) was a lovely contrast to the birds colours.
Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

    Gorgeous bird and background flowers Rita!

  • Yes he is a beauty, they are lovely small parrots and there nearly always two sitting together. Don’t know where his lady was. Perhaps she noticed me with the camera lol. & stayed hidden.
    Thank you for your lovely response Georgie.

    What beautiful colours Rita – i don’t think I have seen one of these before. You have caught him well !

  • They are really beautiful and sweet small parrots. We have enjoyed there visits for the 23 years we have lived here even before the garden was started. They do hoppity runs in the paddocks eating seeds. Now they love the garden and come back every Spring.
    Thank you Roy for your appreciation and comments.
