#179 Red-Rumped Parrot

Female (l) and male (r) red-rumped parrots
Psephotus haematonotus
IUCN Redlist: Least Concern
Location: Royal Park, Melbourne, Australia
Time: 1735 AEDT March 25, 2012

Though they don't have the brightest colours or the boldest patterns, I think the red-rumped parrot is one of the best looking Australian parrots.

Only the males have the distinctive red rump, visible below.
