A 2008 PBS documentary broadcast as part of their PBS Nature series, it looks at parrots in their natural state in Australia. Most people unfortunately associate parrots with cages and perceive them as domesticated animals, but they are highly intelligent birds who thrive in their natural habitats.

They learn how to use tools to attract mates, are adept at finding food sources and have survived over tens of millions of years in Australia despite having to adapt to dramatic environmental changes. It could be argued that parrots are the toughest animals in Australia, despite that countries fearsome reputation for being home to a long list of species which can kill you.


If you are interested in learning more about parrots in Australia then consider purchasing the latest edition of the comprehensive 600 page book Australian Parrots by Joseph M. Forshaw, one of the worlds leading parrot experts. It is available in hardcover format only.
