Happy New Year to you all. Thanks for your fantastic Crane shots. They are quite rare around here.

These parrots like to come for a quick dip in the mornings in our bird bath but are soon gone.

The Red-rumped Parrot (Psephotus haematonotus), also known as the Red-backed Parrot or Grass Parrot, is a common bird of south-eastern Australia, particularly in the Murray-Darling Basin. Red-rumped Parrots are slim, elegant, moderate-sized parrots approximately 28 cm (11 in) in length. The male's plumage is a bright emerald-green with yellow underparts, a brick-red rump and blue highlights on the wings and upper back. The female's plumage is less vibrant, with pale olive underparts, dull green wings and back and blue-black wingtips. The characteristic red rump is only found in the male.
