KING PARROT

KING PARROT  Alisterus scapularus  [06:42]

O'REILLY'S GUESTHOUSE, LAMINGTON NP, GOLD COAST QLD

[ camera ]  Panasonic Varicam HDC-27 

With their red, green & jade colouring 'the kingy'   isarguably Australia's most beautiful parrot. Many call  O'Reilly's in the Gold Coast hinterland home and along with Crimson Rosellas, Satin & Regent Bowerbirds they squabble for handouts from keen guests. A lightning flash of vermillion accompanied by a constant bell-like call makes them instantly recognisable as they expertly fly bullet-like through the forest.
