The King and his Queen

Exquisitely vibrant Australian King Parrots

So glad to be back! I’ve been painting more than ever and now it’s time to put down some thoughts, and there’s no better place, than right here!

For now though, hope you enjoy these King Parrots, they visit us frequently here at our home on the South Coast of NSW in Australia, but they can be found along the whole east coast of Australia.  The male is the only Australian parrot with a completely red-hot head! They mate for life and can live up to 25 years. When you see one, they actually brighten your day!!

  1. I only know of them because I’ve seen them in the aviaries at Dunedin Botanic Gardens (NZ) and thought what perfect-looking pairs they are. So much better to see them living free in their home country like you do, and your watercolour is amazing!

    • Oh Liz, how lovely to hear from you! Yes, I love birds in the wild, it’s the best place for them! We haven’t seen the Dunedin Botanic Gardens, but saw Oamaru’s and they were fantastic too! You live in a beautful country! πŸ™‚
