We have the most beautifully coloured birdlife in Australia.
I photographed these birds while I was staying in a cabin near the Queen Mary Falls in the rainforest in South East Queensland.
The bird with the bright scarlet breast and green wings and tail is an Australian King Parrot.
It is always such a joy to see these birds in the wild.
Our newly-found feathered friends were extremely tame – they are pretty cheeky birds, anyway! We bought bags of seed and hand fed them. The birds even perched on my arm and hat!
