Can you see where the Red-rumped Parrot (Psephotus haematonotus) gets its name? This colorful bird is native to south-eastern Australia where it lives in a variety of habitats such as forests, grasslands, and wetlands. It’s a social bird that forages for seeds and fruits in small flocks, frequently with other parrot species. Females can be distinguished from males by the color of the rump—males’ are red, while females’ are green!
