Rather than show you the numerous deaths of birds beside country roads at harvest time I’ll show you the living ones. Here we have a pair of male Superb Parrots in the early morning light feeding on fallen grain beside the road near Greenethorpe NSW. Superbs are listed as threatened and restricted to an area of central NSW through to the Vic border. Many Rosellas, Galahs, Superbs and Red Rump parrots are killed by fast moving traffic as the birds are unable to fly off quickly due to gorging themselves on the abundant fallen grain… if only people would slow down a little and give them a chance.
