  Another happy face at Blackbutt
by iandsmith

Whilst walking though the various aviaries of Blackbutt Reserve you will see a nice selection of parrots. This is a rosella, a fairly common variety and one of the more colourful though there are several that fit into that category, the lorikeets being a notable example and they have a couple of species on display here as well.
For the budding ornithologist this is a great place to kick off your Australian tour.
