A birding Christmas greeting

On a cold July morning at a bird sanctuary in Victoria, this charming King parrot was happy to be chatted to and pose for photographs.
 

To my blogging and birding friends, thank you for stopping by my blog throughout the year; your comments have always been so enjoyed and appreciated.  Best wishes, Peace and Happiness.

Wonderful parrot! We had them landing outside our windows on a trip to Lorne (coastal Victoria) last year. Very nice to watch over breakfast!
