Apologies for the delayed post, but this observation is worth a note for the record. Friday last week, my son Lach was excited to see a pair of Turquoise Parrots flying through the middle of his school, Orana, in Weston Creek.


Lach’s school is on a slope, and the birds he saw there were flying somewhat below him. He described the pair as smaller than Red-rumped Parrots, with a different call (which is what initially attracted his attention), blue shoulders and a blue face, with the male completely yellow underneath, and the female yellow-to-green underneath. The birds did not land.


Lach knows Turquoise Parrots well as they are reasonably frequent at his grandmother’s farm in the Warby Ranges, Victoria. He and I last saw them together at Cyanide Dam, Chiltern.
