Turquoise parrot: Mixed media prints created by term two's Monday afternoons art class 6 - 8 years old. 756 x 1020

Birdy, birdy, flying high.

John Olson's. "You beaut country", an abstract painting of the Australian outback, inspired the background of our group artwork of the Turquoise Parrot that favours open grassy woodland for its natural habitat.

The Turquoise Parrot is bright and stands out in the Australian countryside, unlike the red golden and brown fur colour of feral predators such as foxes and cats that have an unfair advantage of camouflage when hunting for prey.

The only hope for the Turquoise parrot is that it can fly high, and a ban should be placed on foxes and feral cats in our country.
