Australia has some colourful birds like this male Australian King-Parrot, Eastern Rosellas and the noisy Rainbow LorikeetsMany are found here on the Coffs Coast of New South Wales but there are numerous ones living in other locales that are entirely different. One such parrot is the Western Ground Parrot which is under immense threat due to habitat destruction and feral animals like foxes and wild cats. Unfortunately it is not alone as many of our native birds are threatened due to human action, but on the upside many people are getting involved directly or indirectly through donations. If you are interested you can become a Friend of the Western Ground Parrot by following the link.
