King Parrot brings down the Missus

The first time I saw a King Parrot in my garden I actually gasped.  The red head and chest on the male bird is stunning and really stands out against the natural backdrop of green leaves and foliage. Bigger than a lorikeet and much quieter with a shy nature he's my favourite feathered friend who only visits occasionally.

I was amazed at how close he let me come to him with my camera and he happily kept munching the seed bell as I inched closer and closer to him.

A few days later, much to my surprise, he brought his female partner down. These two birds have to be the most colour co-ordinated pair around with his "Queen" adorning the vivid red pantaloons.
