The Australian parrots that are featured in this gallery were all photographed in their natural habitat, not in captivity.
There are 56 species of parrots in Australia, including cockatoos, lorikeets and rosellas, and while many can be seen in urban areas and are regular backyard visitors, others, such as budgerigars, are primarily birds of the Australian outback.
This photo gallery features 17 species of Australian parrots, from the most familiar to those that are rare and endangered.
