Observations - Orange-bellied Parrot
Observations of the Orange-bellied Parrot near Tower Hill in south-west Victoria.
The Orange-bellied Parrot is extremely hard to find with only about 20-30 birds remaining in the wild. During autumn Orange-belled Parrots migrate from breeding areas in Tasmania to overwinter on mainland Australia. Bob McPherson has managed to locate and film these birds in the wild using high powered telephoto lenses (which explains why the video clip is slightly blurred). His efforts to search and capture these images provides us with an insight into the beauty of this Critically Endangered species.
