G'day Terry,
Without sounding too smug I just had a look at my garden-list, and I've
counted 10 parrot species on the block, but I'm sure that there are places
in North Queensland that can top this....we live 50 kms north of Brisbane.
Any takers?
1.Australian King-parrot (Alisterus scapularis)
2.Pale-headed Rosella (Platycercus adscitus)
3.Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus funereus)
4.Glossy Black-cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus lathami)
5.Galah (Eolophus roseicapillus)
6.Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)
7.Long-billed Corella (Cacatua tenuirostris)
8.Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus)
9.Scaly-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus chlorolepidotus)
10.Little Lorikeet (Glossopsitta pusilla)
