P1190737I’m partway through a road trip that will take me through ‘outback’ New South Wales, South Australia, Northern Territory, and Victoria. Hoping to spot a few different birds on these travels and here is one of the first. Red-rumped parrots are around 27cm. The males, like this one, have the bright green feathers and red rump while the females are a plain greenish brown. I spotted this one in mid-west NSW at a little town called Wilcannia.
