CommentNo red rump but a Red Rumped Parrot all the same, a female, less flamboyant perhaps than her male partner (who was feeding close by) but with a more subtle beauty of her own, with her dark eyes, grey-blue face, olive-green wings fringed with greys, darker upper tail with white edgings, and long main tail with lighter green bleeding into blue. We do not see them all that often in Coburg Lake Reserve but on this, the first day of Melbourne’s third hard lockdown, the Red Rumps were a welcome sight indeed. It seems that some of our less common avian visitors at the park had made it a point to turn up on this, our brief two-hour exercise outing, to lift our spirits in daunting times.
