Wildlife: Parrots

We have a constant variety of parrots and other birds each day in our trees, but when two different types of parrots occupy the same tree-at once, they are easily spooked, hence the blurry photo. These are Galahs and King parrots.

Hello , we live about 20kms outside the outskirts of SYDNEY AUSTRALIA, these are some other parrots I photographed through my kitchen window ,this afternoon. They are a Rainbow Lorikeet, King Parrot, and some Eastern Rosellas on the grass. Thanks for comments, yes we think so. If you don't have a dog or cat [to chase wildlife], then there's no need for a bird aviary in Australia.

You are so lucky to have all these wonderful exotic birds in your own backyard. How very interesting!

I would be watching for feathers all the time and saving them. LOL.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Lyre bird about a bit larger than a pheasant, has a very beautiful call, and can mock any other call.

Oh my! All are so beautiful, Julie! You mentioning the Lyre's call awakens the senses to realize there's so much more to the birds than their visual beauty but also their music.

And Lyre is such a perfect name for that bird! Makes music and, since the bird mocks other birds music, the pronunciation of Lyre fits perfectly for the meaning of another word that's spelled differently. ;-) LOL!
