Alisterus scapularis

All Hail the King

Now I’m REALLY embarrassed. After all the fuss made recently about the existence of the Australian King Parrot (Alisterus scapularis) (click HERE to view), the creature after which the local creek and hence this environmental group was named, guess what should show up at our place for the first time ever. Yep, the very same.DSCN3433 - Copy

Mr and Mrs were not very scared and were obviously looking for some hand-outs for dinner. Needless to say they left with nothing (we don’t feed wildlife) but they did brighten up an otherwise dreary, rainy, seven-degree day.DSCN3438

I AM a believer. Long live the King!
