Just to prove she harboured no hard feelings against parrotkind, Hazel snapped this pair of Eclectus parrots (Eclectus roratus) not long after she was bitten by Mr Glossy.
Natives of the North Queensland vineforest, the female bird has a lurid red head and (true to her Queensland roots) a maroon fuselage. The male comes in snazzy green.
The two sexes differ so markedly in colour, they were once thought to be separate species - though assumedly not by one another.
