All the Reds - Red-winged Parrot and Red-backed Kingfisher and Red-tailed Black Cockatoos photos

The Red-winged Parrots were at Daly Waters and along the Buchanan Highway:. Apart from their bright green plumage, their red-tipped wings and their pink/red beaks, they have beautiful turquoise back feathers only visible in flight.

The Red-backed Kingfishers appeared at Kalkarindji

(when I was watching this one I thought he was probably thinking "there was a feather around here somewhere ....")
and they have also appeared at Lajamanu:

I have also seen a lot of Red-tailed Black Cockatoos, mainly on the western side of the Stuart Highway, and ran into a flock of at least 20 yesterday morning along the Buchanan Highway. Here is one photo showing the beautiful tail feathers:

  1. Hi!
    Great pictures, my favorite are the last one. A bit strange? I realy like that one, cant say why... Probably the big red spots.
