Australian parrots

 

When we see a parrot, we stop, draw in a breath, and marvel at its beauty.

Parrots fascinate people. Is it just because they are beautiful? Or is it also because they are playful? Or maybe it’s because they are clever. After all, who can resist a bird that can talk!

Australian parrots is the perfect introduction to this fascinating group of birds. It provides basic information on where they live, what they look like, what they eat and how they breed. It features colour photographs that give young readers an eyewitness view of the behaviour of true parrots and cockatoos.

Australian parrots is ideal for 6 to 12 year olds who are interested in parrots and want to learn more about them.

So what are parrots?

Parrots are birds that are brilliantly coloured. A parrot has a strong curved beak. It also has two toes facing forwards and two toes facing backwards on each foot.

An Eastern Rosella has brilliant red, yellow green and blue feathers.

Parrots are active during the day and sleep at night.

Australian daytime birds of prey 

When we see a bird of prey, we stop, draw in a breath, and watch, spellbound.
 
Birds of prey have an aura about them. Is it because of their piercing eyes? Their hooked beak? Or their razor-sharp talons? Is it because they can soar to great heights and fly at astonishing speeds? Or is it because they are terrifyingly efficient hunters?

So what are birds of prey?

Birds of prey are birds that hunt and eat other animals. These other animals are known as prey. Birds of prey catch, kill and carry prey with their claws, which are called talons.

Daytime birds of prey are active during the day and sleep at night. Nocturnal birds of prey, such as owls, are active during the night. They rest during the day.
