They are, Snooker... It really does sound like they're saying 'twenty eight' 'twenty eight'... Brings a smile every time I hear them.... :) :) :)

Good pic, Sally. Would love to meet up with these fellows. They sound so interesting.

Shirley, Aussie birds are glorious... Well maybe not the crows... So colourful... I guess most parrots are easily tamed and make good pets, but I'd rather see them flying free... Even the little Corellas have a charm of their own... A very noisy charm, but none the less... We had a big mob come in tonight to the palm tree... What a racket... So many they looked like ornaments hanging off the fruit branches.... Almost time for bed here... Sleep well, dear friend... We're off again tomorrow to Yallingup Cave. Dunsborough and Cow Town (Cowamerup).... Thanks, mate.... :) :)

That's a fantastic photo Sally!!! He's a real beauty! Do you know why they're called a 28? Would it have something to do with the noise it makes? Super :)))

Ah, Good Buddy, it is a glorious place... Small and filled with wonderful wildlife... As free ranging as possible... The grapes were a big hit with the parrots... After they found one dropped on the ground they came right in and helped themselves, snatched them right out of our fingers... And if you didn't have food (provided by the park) they'd come on down and try to eat your hat.... Cheeky birds... The colors are incredible... We are indeed lucky to have such a place close by (walking distance almost)... (Hugs back at ya...)....
