Can be wild birds. Remember also that this species is among the more commonly kept of native parrots in aviaries. Or was many years ago. The Neophemas (particularly the Turquoise, Scarlet-chested & Bourke’s Parrots) are generally nice and easy to keep, because among other things, they are small, active, pretty birds and can be in mixed collections and are the only parrots that can be safely kept with finches.

I have just seen a post on Facebook, someone photographed a female Turquoise Parrot at Namadgi Visitor Centre today. I wonder if we have 2 present?

Hi all,
Just passing on from Claire Taylor who found a female Turquoise Parrot in Campbell Park ‘along Telecom Rd before you reach the phone wires that cross the road.’
