Australian King Parrots #2

Every now and then King Parrots (Alisterus scapularis) turn up at the feeders I have in my garden. Last time they came, the birds were very approachable and I was very surprised how close they allowed me to get to them. These birds which turned up this morning we very wary, and I quickly learned that I had to keep my distance.

The colouring of this bird suggests a female or an immature bird. Perhaps this was the reason for its wariness!!
