At the "JM Jones Tearooms" on Mt Nebo, the trees are full of Australian King Parrots, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Rainbow Lorikeets. The tearooms provide cups of Sunflower seeds to feed the birds.
Male Australian King-Parrots are the only Australian parrots with a completely red head. Females are similar to males except that they have a completely green head and breast. Both sexes have a red belly and a green back, with green wings and a long green tail. King parrots are normally encountered in pairs or family groups.
This cheeky male decided he would rather eat off my husbands hat than his hand.
The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is a large white parrot. It has a dark grey-black bill, a distinctive sulphur-yellow crest and a yellow wash on the underside of the wings. Sexes are similar, although the female can be separated at close range by its red-brown eye (darker brown in the male). This is a noisy and conspicuous cockatoo, both at rest and in flight. Young Sulphur-crested Cockatoos resemble the adults.
They are intelligent, very loud, mischievous and are often regarded as pests.
