King Parrot at Tidbinbilla

King Parrot

Black Swan
Sulphur Crested Cockatoo
The King Parrot is a large Australian parrot found in Eastern Australia. The shot was taken at Tidbinbilla Wildlife Sanctuary near Canberra, Australia's capital city.Tidbinbilla is a great place for birds and typical Australian wildlife such as Kangaroos and Emus. The Galah ,Swan and Sulphur Crested Cockatoos were also photographed there.There are also platypus in the wetlands lagoons.I recommend anyone who is a birder or photographer to visit the sanctuary if you visit Australia and particularly Canberra.The wildlife is mostly very approachable and co operative for photography but you still have to work at it.
