    The budgerigar is an occasional visitor to South Australia. It is called Shell-Parrot or Canary-Parrot by the colonists of this country with whom it is very popular. One of the favoured breeding-places, the object of my close observation, is Mallee Shrub, a beautiful eucalyptus wood, extending to the Murray, from its mouth to the first big curve of the river. If, in this inhospitable region, after a wet winter, it continues to rain abundantly in the spring—that is, at the end of September—grass will grow to an unusual density and height. Many square miles, otherwise unmistakably bearing the stamp of a dreary sandy desert, are suddenly covered with the finest kangaroo-grass which, under the influence of the summer heat, shoots up to the height of three feet. The blossom develops rapidly, and about five or six weeks later runs to seed. Long before, however, the pretty parrots have appeared in innumerable swarms, and now they apply themselves eagerly to their task of nesting operations.
