Red Rump Parrot - Psephotus haematonotus
The male's plumage is a bright emerald-green with yellow underparts, a brick-red rump and blue highlights on
the wings and upper back. The female's plumage is less vibrant, with pale olive underparts, dull green wings
and back and blue-black wingtips. The characteristic red rump is only found in the male.
When perched in the treetops they emit a pleasant,
trill-like whistle, almost a song.
A disyllabic, shrill whistle with an upward inflection
repeated three of four times. Calling to one another
with an attractive "chee chillip chee chillip."
