Parrots of Australia

Parrots of Australia

Australian Parrots (Psittacidæ)
by John Gould (1804-1881) from The Birds of Australia, Volume V

The Birds of Australia was published in seven volumes between 1840 and 1848. It was the first comprehensive survey of the birds of Australia and included descriptions of 681 species, 328 of which were new to science and were first described by Gould.

 John Gould was an English ornithologist and bird artist. He and his wife Elizabeth travelled to Australia from England in 1838 to prepare the book and spent a little under two years collecting travelling widely and making   extensive collections of Australian birds and other fauna. Elizabeth, who had illustrated several of his earlier works, made hundreds of drawings from specimens for this publication.

The Gould League was established in Australia in 1909 to encourage interest in natural history and conservation.
