In February the King Parrots come to visit at the Reserve.  The male king parrot has  a brilliant red breast and head, black tail and dark green body while the female has a dull in comparison, red underbelly  and green head and body.

They forage in the trees here for seeds and fruit and sometimes they drop them, bang they go on the roof! They have a loud high pitched whistle, so I always know when they arrive.
