I remember that during our 11 + years in Alice Springs, whenever I got to travel west of Alice that I kept an eye out for Princess Parrots- I never got to see them in the wild. These beautiful birds with soft colour tones are a rarity for bird watchers mainly because they normally occur in the remote deserts of Western Australia (i.e. Great Victoria Desert, Gibson Desert and Great Sandy Desert).
It seems that their colours vary considerably in intensity from bird to bird.
