King parrot
by: Jason

This is a beautiful bird, To me it is a Cinnamon mutation of the Australian king parrot, It is hard to tell if its not cinnamon it is a dilute mutation.
I breed these coloured King parrots and would be very interested in talking to you about it.
Unfortuintly these mutations do happen from time to time in the wild but never last long as being a diffrent colour they are easy pray for other birds and animals.
My email is bird76@bigpond.com if you have more pictures or want to talk about the birds.

Red-rumped parrot?
by: Judy-WA

David & Carol, could your visitor be a red-rumped parrot. I did some searching on the web and found this webpage http://www.avianweb.com/redrumpedmutations.html

These parrots have numerous colour mutations, but a couple of their pics looked a lot like yours. They are also breed in captivity and sold as pets. If you see it again, check for a leg band.

It's a beautiful bird!
