Theme Day: Green

Given that most of the photographs I take are in the forest there is plenty of green in this blog so I tried to think of something else that is green and representative of the mountains.  I settled on the King Parrots which frequent the bush and our gardens.  I love to hear their high pitched call and see their colourful plumage.

  5. That is a great shot of a King Parrot. It is a rarity here in Grafton but i trip into the hills and you will find lots of them. I love the strength in their flight. Have a great month.

  7. OMGosh - If I saw one of those out in my bushes I would totally freak out. We have robins and wrens, the occasionaly crow - nothing as colorful or as large as a parrot! I love viewing things that are "normal" to others. so exciting! And - green - looks good

  9. Great capture. Isn't he beautiful? And he's going to be even more beautiful when he finishes moulting.

  10. What a gorgeous shot! You are so lucky to have such visitors. I envy you as mine are mainly pigeons that actually leave their mess behind...

  17. Very pretty bird, quite something to see in the wild. We have no parrots here in my bit of Yorkshire but there is a parakeet living wild here in the village where I live. I could not believe it when I first saw it high in a tree, maybe an escapee or one flown North from the small colonies now living around N London.
