Wild Parrots of Australia, Part 2

tags: , , , , , ,

Okay, if you are like me, you were not able to see the Nature program, Parrots in the Land of Oz, which aired on PBS on 19, 20 and 21 October. So I have dug up a few videos that give you a glimpse of what you did not see. This is a second video includes lots of footage of huge squadrons of flying budgerigars, and several species of stunningly colored rosellas and lories (which I’ve bred in captivity) [9:24]

    All I could think of for the first 2 minutes was MY GOODNESS, that’s a lot of budgies.

    For anyone who would like to see the whole documentary at once,

    if you’re able to access the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
    http://www.abc.net.au/tv/documentaries/interactive/parrots/

    It has a streaming serve of the documentary, not exactly hd tv quality, but passable on a small screen, and the site also has behind-the-scenes vision.

The site is currently under maintenance and will be back shortly. New comments have been disabled during this time, please check back soon.
