King Parrots and Crimson Rosellas

These are photos from last year of the local King Parrots (Alisterus scapularis) and Crimson Rosellas (Platycercus elegans) getting accustomed to the temporary bird-feeding tray we set up in front of the house. The King Parrots are the brighter green birds with red or orange bellies. The rosellas with some green plumage are females or juvenile males. See a later post for pics of the permanent bird feeder. We also have a few trays hanging under the eaves of the house.
