The superb parrot is a highly-mobile, seasonal visitor to the NSW South-West-Slopes and Western Riverina where it breeds in spring and summer. Most of the population departs in autumn and winter, but their movements and non-breeding habitat are not well known.

The Office of Environment and Heritage has been working with the community to collect important population and distribution information that will contribute to the understanding, conservation and management of the superb parrot. Our community members take note of when the birds arrive and depart their local area, where they are nesting, where and what they are eating and other important behavior information. They often share photos, and sometimes videos of the birds. And we would like to share our observations (and yours) with everyone. Find out more about the superb parrot citizen science project.
