The Parrot with a Crown!
We met a feathered friend in the outback! This shy green bird is not always easy to spot, but we were lucky!
Location: Great Victorian Desert

We were so excited to find a few of these chatty little birds! They tend to gather in a group for mating and then disappear again!
So pretty. Are there queens? 🙂
