The Red-winged Parrot (Aprosmictus erythoperus) is a biggish bird — from 30-33cm in length. It’s found widely across Australia’s north and south almost to Victoria in the east, both on the coast and inland, and in a range of habitats. The male is the more colourful but the flashes of red from the wings of both males and females is a treat when they are seen in flight.
