    As I was making my way to the kitchen block for breakfast I saw a flock of Australian King Parrots flying around. They settled in a tree and I managed to get myself in a position to get a picture or two. It turned out to be a mixed group of sexes and ages, so possibly a family party.

    Another 'royal' bird was watching us from a tree. This is a juvenile Australian King Parrot with his rather, as yet, muted colours.

    "Raindrops keep falling....

    ... on my head" A beautiful Australian King Parrot was getting soaked in the torrential downpour. We had several of these overnight and that morning... thunderous rain. But quite a relief in view of the devastating bush fires and the low water levels. Saturday Fun

    Bon voyage

    We were only home for a day after the extraordinary visit to Bowra, when we were off again on another adventure to the Gold Coast. An Australian King Parrot was out in the early morning sun to wish us farewell as we packed the car.

    Quite regal

    Although we'd done the outward journey to Bowra in two days, we did the return in one long session. We left temperatures of circa 40C but as we climbed the Bunya Mountains encountered first rain.... which then turned to snow!!! There had been some rain while we were away which has mostly...

    Back

    I can't remember seeing another of my pictures showing the back of these beautiful parrots, so here we go. They've another colour there that I wasn't aware of... that pretty blue on the back. BTW well done to those who spotted 5 of them in that tree. The last one was in very very bottom left...

    They seem to be trying to obey the rules here, don't they. I was on my way to the kitchen block for breakfast when I spotted this flock of King Parrots up in a tree. It would appear to be a family group I think, as there seems to be an adult male, a female and younger ones? Can you see how...

    After Judy and I had explored the canopy walk we merged into daylight again and found Hans. Wandering back through the grounds and near where I'd seen the bowerbird, was this lovely juvenile King Parrot with his orange tummy.

    The King is back

    We were off early on our travels again the next day, but before we left this gorgeous King Parrot paid a return visit, this time to the vegetable garden. Couldn't resist him.

    As I said yesterday, I lost the folder of pictures from our long, long drive home .... which was quite eventful really coming across my first Wedge-tailed Eagle and actually seeing some snow at the side of the road as we crossed the Banya Mountains! We'd had some rain while we'd been away...
