They look like Mulga Parrots with interesting, almost iridescent, colouration on the rump. Compare with (if the link works):
p.s. - have Mulga's and Eastern Ringnecks been known to hybridise? Mulga's have hybridised with other Psephotus parrots (and Rosellas) and Red-rumpeds have hybridised with Ringnecks (all in aviaries).

As I say, the pictures where taken on a property near Quilpie. It is on a
watered lawn.

The birds are shy and the pictures where taken are from a video clip.

The pictures were sent to me in the hope I could help.

Best regards
