Red Rumped Parrot

I was very surprised to see this Red Rumped Parrot at the local park, with the group doing a census survey of the Greenway that goes through the park.  I have never seen one there before, Inner West Sydney, (although I am told that there are a lot of them seen further south at the Cooks River.)

Thanks Sue i h ad thought it may be an escapee but some more experienced people said that it was more likely to be a wild bird

Yes, a wild bird more likely. I have seen them near Lake Belevedere in the Sydney Olympic Park area. It is surprising the variety of birds to be seen around Sydney if you just keep looking.

That is true and has made me remember to expect the unexpected.
