Red-rumped Parrots and Musk Lorikeets

Okay well maybe Melbourne is famous for being modern and cosmopolitan and isn’t famous for Red-rumps and Muskies but it will always go down in my book as a great place to see them!


Red-rumps are such fantastic little parrots and often quite trusting.  Females are so dramatically differently colored than their mates.  In parks like this one they have become pretty blase about people, and cameras pointed at them for that matter.
