Australia: Land of Parrots explores the spectacular and bizarre behavior of Australia's wild parrots and cockatoos across the varied landscapes of the island continent. In the tropical rain forests of northern Australia the female Eclectus Parrot defies every rule in the evolutionary rule book. Instead of being drab, like most female birds, she's brightly colored. Meanwhile the decade-long drought in the center of Australia has broken and budgerigars gather to breed. Time is short – they quickly pair up, lay eggs and rear their young, all in the space of a few months. Parrots are very adaptable, the southern coast of Australia is battered by fierce weather yet Rock Parrots live along the shoreline. Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, Little Corellas and galahs have been quick to take advantage of opportunities arising from modern farming. With food and water easily available, their populations have exploded, causing havoc for farmers.
