BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY WEEKLY ~ 15 Red-Rumped Parrot

The Red-Rumped Parrot, Psephotus haematonotus,
fast flying and very skittish, is very hard to photograph.



Fledgling on the left, mature bird on the right.



Note begging pose of fledgeling on the left.



Rather far away, but the red rump is plainly showing.



The yellow belly is quite distinctive and when you see
them dart past as a flock the main impression is of
quite a starltlingly irridescent blue-green, the colour
of their head and wings.
