Parrots and Cockatoos are among the most conspicuous birds in Australia, found everywhere and often in large numbers. These extraordinary birds make their home in habitats ranging from the dense rain forests of the tropical north to the cold,wind-swept southern coastlines and across the arid interior. They are smart adaptable and stunningly beautiful. In this scene a Perentie roams a Central Australian desert in search of prey.
