The Australian Male King Parrot

The Australian Male King Parrot

This stunning crimson red parrot flew down once he saw the free seed on offer on top of the chicken coop.
He seemed to really love it, and it didn’t take long for me him to dig down deep into the container displaying that beautiful fluorescent lime green stripe on his wing.

I have found them to be a little more timid and shy compared to Lorikeets or other parrots.

It was also quite odd to see him on his own, because generally you see them in pairs.

My guess was the female was in the nest nurturing their babies.

I salvaged this photo in my old lap top and just had to share it with you, as I don’t have many photos of the King Parrot.

Please free to share this post online.
