Waking up to my first Outback Parrots

We camped near an old abandoned well operated by a defunct windmill. After waking up in our tents to our first outback sunrise, we spotted small flocks of Galahs, Australian Ringnecks, and Mulga Parrots. All within a short distance of our tents!

I was like an owl on steroids twisting my head back and forth everywhere we drove hoping to get a glimpse of even more parrot species!  I was simply stunned at what I could only see in aviaries in North America flying wild and free everywhere!
