AUSTRALIAN KING-PARROT
Alisterus scapularis 42 cm

           The Australian King-Parrot is endemic to forests and coastal woodlands of eastern   Australia.

           In north Queensland it is uncommon but distributed widely in upland areas.

           The colourful adult male is always outnumbered by plainer birds (the females and      juveniles).

           Food is mainly seeds, especially of eucalypts and acacias but including a great
  variety of other plants.

           Small flocks are observed regularly round Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge .
