Australian Birds – The King Parrot

We photographed this wonderful pair at Jingellic, a town that sits on the border of Victoria and New South Wales where the Murray River flows by.

Whenever in the bush we are always on the lookout for an opportunity to identify and photograph our wonderful native birds.  And we are certainly not experts on either of those two counts, so sometimes we just take the time to sit down and observe.

A pretty good way to pass the time, don’t you reckon, hey…?

About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the ochre red earth touching a deep blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a turquoise blue sea; and the characters you meet in a quiet country pub, where it is nothing flash, but you are enriched by the encounter…

A few years ago we decided it was time to graduate from work and re-enter the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Thanks for joining us in the adventure…!

Cheers, Baz & Janet
