We've got pretty green parrots here in San Diego California, but nothing like these guys. Australia has such beautiful birds.

Hi Jen
Many thanks for responding! These guys are very friendly towards humans and will happily sit on your hand or shoulder:)

Hi Jill,
Many thanks - I love these birds. Yesterday I had one try to walk in to my lounge room from the balcony. They are incredibly friendly and trusting

How lucky to be in such close proximity to such lovely birds. Hope people don't abuse their trusting nature. Lovely photograph.

Hi Nats mum

Over the last few days, we have had a few sit on our balcony railng, and try to walk in via open French windows!
