Baby King Parrot (Alisterus scapularis)

I was listening to quite a commotion outside and just passing if off as the usual squabbling of resident birds

I almost missed seeing something I haven't noticed before.

The sight of a dad feeding his baby.

In my defence I did have an awful lot to do. We had a garden club coming to visit and we wanted the place to look its best. So there was much sweeping, weeding, mulching and mowing taking place - no time to listen to birds!

So here he is. I wonder what he's pushing into the baby's mouth?
