Australian Grass Parrot

Today whilst scouting a new location on the open meadows of New England NSW, I found some grass parrots. These very colourful birds showed up at the last minute as the sun was setting. The male is bright and the female is very well camouflaged in the same photograph below. These birds are predominantly rare in NSW. They mainly appear in rural areas and are an uncommon sight to most Australians.
