The Australian King Parrot is found along most of the eastern coast of Australia. P1160001The parrots favour rainforests, eucalypt woodlands and orchards but this pair enjoyed feasting on a wild tobacco plant that grows on the edge of Moonee Beach Nature Reserve on the Coffs Coast in New South Wales. The female has a green head and back (though coloured underneath) and the male has the red head and breast. They have nice long tails and sit around the 43 cm mark when fully grown.
