I adore the Australian King Parrot ♥ Endemic to eastern Australian all the way from northern Queensland to the southern tip of Victoria. I have been lucky enough to have a pair of King Parrots visit my garden for years. The male of the species has an entirely red head (like the handsome boy in the drawing) and the females have a completely red head and breast… both sexes have red bellies and bright green backs. They are a timid bird and are not likely to eat of your hand… no matter how long they’ve known you. They seem to be thriving population wise in well-treed urban areas… another reason to keep our trees. I hope my pair keep visiting me for years to come.
