Red-throated Parrot Finch 1 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

Red-throated Parrot Finch 1 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)
The red-throated parrot finch is a new bird for me and is the next addition to my "Birds of Bloedel Series." This remarkable bird is native to Australia and prefers grassland areas, though it seems quite comfortable in the conservatory's jungle canopy. According to one guide, there are 13 different types of parrot finches. Only 12 more to go! :) The photo was taken in August 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
