When we moved here in 1998 we had a lot of native birds visit the garden. This King Parrot was one of my favourites. He and his mate would visit daily and also bring their family with them. Sadly the miner birds have taken over and chased all other birds away.
But over the past few days I have heard the distinctive high-pitched whistle of the King Parrot and this morning I was so excited to see him land, nervously, in one of the trees. He was only there for a couple of minutes and I didn’t have my camera with me. ( The above photo was taken many years ago)
I do hope he comes back.
