Mount Nebo is a mountain approximately 18 km North West of the Brisbane suburb of The Gap in Queensland, Australia. It is part of the D'Aguilar Range which includes other mountains such as Mount Pleasant, Mount Glorious and Mount Mee.
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.
