20 May What Animal Am I?
t’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!
Let’s see who has decided to ‘fly’ in this week!
“Why hello there! Thanks for having me as the mystery guest today.
Can you guess who I am?
You can find me in open woodlands, forest edges, grasslands, and urban parks and farmlands across south eastern Australia.
I eat seeds, leaves, grass, fruit and flowers and my friends and I often munch away on the ground in pairs or in small groups.
In my species, males and females look different, and we call this sexual dimorphism. My feathers are mostly green, with some yellow and blue. I’m a male, and when I fly you can get a good look at my bright red rump.
Females of my species aren’t as brightly coloured as the males. Females are olive green in colour, with a green rump.
What animal do you think I am?”
