Red Rumped Parrot

These little parrots are frequently seen out in the west, sometimes in quite big flocks. At the time I posted that original photo Letty helped identify then as Red Rumped Parrots.  In this photo you can just see the red under his wings.


  1. Aren't they the cutest little dudes?
    We don't seem to see them much in Ararat but when we were back at our old home in Melbourne last week - I spotted them everywhere in the parks.
    They always make me feel happy.

  2. They are gorgeous, but parrots generally are. They are such a gregarious bird. And I love how their least obvious feature becomes their identifier.

  3. Sweet little birds. Such soft pastel colours and then that dash of red! Special.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
