Red-winged parrot        Images © Mark A. Chappell

The male red-winged parrot of northern Australia is a brilliantly colored standout, even among that continent's very diverse parrot species.   Females lack the red "shoulders" and black back of the male, but are very attractive nonetheless.   I took these photographs near Darwin, in the Northern Territory.
