Endangered Animal

The Orange-bellied Parrot is a small, stocky, ground-dwelling parrot.

They breed in Tasmania and migrate to Sydney for winter, where they live in sheltered coastal habitats such as bays and lagoons, estuaries, coastal dunes and saltmarshes.

They eat seeds and fruits of sedge and salt-tolerant coastal and saltmarsh plants.
