Oldman Saltbush Snack




Red-rumped Parrots, Bob Corbould wetland
(female top, male bottom)

 The parrots were having a great ol' feed on the saltbush on the weekend. I was lucky enough to catch some of them in the morning sunshine. These guys are pretty common around here but this is the best photo opportunity I've had so far. The female is quite plain in comparison to the male but I think she has a lovely soft face.
