Superb Parrot – Polytelis swainsonii

Bird of the Week is the Superb Parrot. This brightly coloured, medium-sized parrot is endemic to south-eastern Australia and is often found in areas with River Red Gums, particularly along the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers. Breeding season is Sept – Dec, so it is likely that pairs are checking out suitable nesting hollows now, getting ready to breed soon. Image by JJ Harrison (
