Pied Currawongs (Strepera graculina) and Cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus) are commonly seen in the edge of the outback in the Coonabarabran area. The Currawong is a large handsome bird in the corvid (crow) family that has a distinctive noisy call and hangs aroung picnic tables in Warrumbungle National Park hoping for leftovers!


 This Little Lorikeet (Glossopsitta coincinna) and Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus) are common inhabitants of New South Wales' forests and gardens and can even be seen in trees and bushes lining city streets!



 This Noisy Miner (Manorina melanocephala)-left- is an inhabitant of woodlands and suburbs of eastern Australia. The Superb Kingfisher (Todirhampus sancta) is a small kingfisher that can be found in eucalypyus forests and mangroves around Australia's perimeter.

  The famous Swainson's Blue Mountain Lorikeets (Trichoglossus haematodus) are the main attraction at the feeding station
at Currumbin Sanctuary/ Queensland.

 These are wild Australian King Parrots (Alisterus scalpularis) and Pennant/Crimson Rosellas (Platycercus elegans) feeding on the grounds of O'Reilly's Guesthouse near Lamington National Park, Queensland.


 This comical but gorgeous pair of Long-Billed Slender-Billed Cockatoos (Cacatua tenuirostris) was photographed in a private aviary. This large cockatoo species is found in nature in a small range in southeast Australia in woodlands and farm lands near rivers. These very intelligent birds have playful, endearingly goofy personalities!

 The habitat at right is where one might easily see Rose-Breasted Cockatoos (Eolophus roseicapillus), known as
Galahs in Australia and Greater Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos (Cacatua galerita). These birds congregate near rivers to feed
and roost in the late afternoon in the Coonabarabran area, New South Wales.
