^ This king parrot landed on the railing while I was hanging out the washing and he was bobbing around to Hilltop Hoods (I think he liked Chase That Feeling), chattering away at me in parrot-y language. But he just wouldn't do it when I tried to film him. Cheeky minx.
He stayed around for about 40 minutes or so, wandering up and down the railings, hopping around on the ferns. He'd get really excited when I'd make parrot noises back at him, which was amusing. Most of the time, I could have just reached out and patted him, but resisted the urge. He would have either freaked out or used the beak. Or both.
