Bourke’s Parrot
(Neopsephotus bourkii)

Often seen coming into waterholes at dusk and after the sun has set, gives this quiet bird it’s other common name of ‘Night Parrot’, although this confuses it with the true Night Parrot (Pezoporus occidentalis).

These parrots appear to be very tame, flying only short distances to nearby trees when disturbed.

With its grey and brown plumage, these birds blend well under mulga bushes, as they feed on the ground, often seen eating the seeds of acacia pods. This long-tailed parrot has a pinkish brown with scaly markings, that become a reddish pink on the underbelly. The lower belly, thighs and undertail are a deep blue.
