Bloedel Floral Conservatory - Part 4

Another wet day today. And I am exhausted right now. After this post, I am going to wash the dishes, shower, and possibly head to bed early.

Meet Nelson, a Hahn's Dwarf Macaw or Red-shouldered Macaw (Diopsittaca nobilis). A bird native to Venezuela and the smallest in the macaw family.

See the red shoulder patch?

And this is Monty, the Princess Parrot (Polytelis alexandrae). They are also known as the Splendor Parrot due to the pastel coloured plumages. They are "native to Central and West Australia...but rarely seen in the wild." From Quick Guide: Birds of Bloedel.

Pretty bird

Photos from 5 more species to go...probably finish in about 4 more posts. Good night, all.
