Australian King-Parrot

Alisterus scapularis


Male Australian King-Parrots are the only Australian parrots with a completely red head. Females are similar to males except that they have a completely green head and breast. Both sexes have a red belly and a green back, with green wings and a long green tail. King parrots are normally encountered in pairs or family groups.

Good shot.
I was just reading how these birds need a 2 metre deep tree hollow to nest.
