Bird of the Week Challenge: 30th March - Pretty Parrots

Morning everybody


Thank you for another round of gorgeous photos, and an interesting debate on bills versus beaks!

This week lets do one we have done before - share photos of the beautiful parrots. They can be cockatoos, lorikeets, corellas, rosellas - any of the parrots.

I love Parrots, they have to be the clowns of the bird species.

Eastern Roselas over the back fence. Is that the correct ID for these birds?
