Even though they can be seen around Perth, it took Hazel and I a 400km drive south to Albany to see our first wild Red-Capped Parrot (Purpureicephalus spurius).
Haze photographed this young female about 5pm yesterday.
We also saw a few Western Rosellas in scrubland and (I think) a pair of Purple-Crowned Lorikeets by Albany Highway yesterday afternoon, but the preposterous creatures flew off before we could snap 'em.
Next time we'll set a trap:-)
