One of those moments..... Last week I was in a location in Victoria (which I am not disclosing here, for hopefully obvious reasons) with a friend and well into dusk with light fading we spotted a small green parrot dart into the weeds aside a road. Thinking it was a blue-winged parrot and not a red-rump we stopped and investigated. Turned out to be something else... an Orange-bellied parrot. Whats more there were two of them. One was ringed (a male) the other one appeared not.
Before anyone asks, arrangements have been made to report the locality/data of these birds to the recovery programme.
They were very confiding and behaved like red-rumps, allowing 10 minutes plus of observation while they stuffed themselves, some of which you can see here. We came across these birds by pure accident.
