Great Dividing Range.

Wallabadah is up on the Great Dividing Range, about fifty kilometers east of Tamworth. The cemetery is a favourite spot of mine, which I visit when I go past here on the way up the mountains.

There were about four immature Australian King-parrot at the cemetery in the morning after the torrential rain of the night before. I am pretty sure this is an immature female.

And I think this is an immature male because of the patchy red on the chest. Sorry about the blown-out background. doh!
