Australian King Parrots

Grey River Road in Kennett River is a popular route for many of the Great Ocean Road tours.

We spent an hour. We did not go very far and soon spotted two koalas asleep in the gum trees along the way. We were lucky that they were so close to the road. Cameras clicking away ... of koalas woke to stretch out and gave us many different attitudes :) I must say that koalas in Victoria are the biggest I've seen.

In another place close by, the tour guide gave us food and we had fun feeding Australian king parrots and Crimson Rosellas. A colorful surprise! Crimson Rosella seems more timid by nature, compared to the Australian king parrots.

All it was a nice experience to be up close and personal with koalas and these native birds :)

Tip: Freely route if you would make a detour on their own while visiting the Great Ocean Road.

Quaker Parrots

Quaker ParrotsA hearty welcome to all bird lovers! I am here to share some interesting facts about our quaker parrot. Originally from South America, ranging from Brazil to Argentina, the quaker parrot is similiar in size to a Cockatiel, although it is stouter and weighs more. Also known as a monk parakeet, it is bright green over the head, in the body, and down the tail, with a little visible blue in the tip of the tail and the flight feathers.

Quaker ParrotsThe quaker parrot enjoys soothing, cooing tones like, "Goooood Bird", and "Pretty Baaaaby". And of course it is an excellent talker. The baby quaker parrot can be heard softly, sometimes loudly, practicing its repertoires of human noises long before the words become clear. A quaker parrot loves to play amusing little games that provide great opportunity to bond with your parrot. It is a highly intelligent creature. A quaker parrot requires a tremendous amount of attention and stimulus in order to avoid boredom and aggression.

The more you respond to the noises made by your quaker parrot, the more you invite it to acquire human speech. It is just as interesting to study a quaker parrot's development just as it is in the case of a human baby. Just like your baby, your pet needs proper training for healthy living.
