I made a field trip recently with the main aim of viewing, studying and photographing Psephotus and Neopsephotus grass parrots. One species of Psephotus, the Red-rumped Parrot can be seen if I travel around one to two hours from home. However for this trip I was aiming to see the Bourke's Parrot and the Mulga Parrot.
I went for a visit to the home of Jeff Bray and Rod Leys
recently. Jeff has long been one of Australia's finest Softbill breeders
and since retirement from work Jeff and Rod's collection has steadily
increased. I always enjoy
visiting and what makes it that much more enticing is that the home and
aviaries are surrounded by superb gardens tendered too by Jeff and Rod. It is a true paradise.
