Blue-winged Parrot bathing: our Pic of the Week!⁠

Wayne Suffield captured this gorgeous image at Ararat, Victoria, in mid-January. ⁠

“It’s early morning at a local waterhole and a Blue-winged Parrot reveals its flashy beauty while bathing. It was remarkable to witness its attention to every detail of plumage. Few movements were repeated; this tail flair was a one off.”⁠

Thanks for letting us share your image, Wayne – these little parrots need all the help they can get right now ❤️⁠

Ten years ago, the species was officially listed as not in danger, with a global conservation status of “least concern”.⁠
In the years since, its numbers have crashed by an estimated 40 per cent in Tasmania!⁠

You can hear more about the plight if the Blue-winged Parrot in this interview from May 2019 with BirdLife Australia’s Sean Dooley on Radio National: https://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/breakfast/blue-winged-parrot-facing-extinction/11136690⁠
