Nature

Parrots in the Land of Oz

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Parrots are everywhere in Australia. From the outrageous drumming palm cockatoo in the tropical rainforests, to the shameless red female eclectus parrot of the far north who keeps a harem of males, to the golden-shouldered parrot in the woodlands that excavates a nest in a termite mound, to the incredibly prolific budgerigars of the deserts, a spectacular array of parrots has evolved here. Big and small, rare and bizarre, colorful and intelligent, they are the most conspicuous and exotic birds on this amazing island continent. Many mate for life, building homes and families together. Their colors, behaviors and habitats are all described in depth by the scientists studying them and the Australians who live among them in this delightful film from down under.
