This year’s floods along river systems such as the Diamantina and Georgina sparked prolific breeding by the budgies which have been feasting on an abundance of grass seeds.
“I have been here since 1983 and never seen anything like it,” Boulia grazier Ann Britton said. “The skies are thick with budgies — how they do not collide with each other is a miracle in itself.”
