A captivating story of the remarkable, but critically endangered, swift parrot — one of the fastest parrots in the world!

Swifty grows from a hatchling to a fledgling in the blue-gum forests of Tasmania. She is then ready to make a challenging migration, following the blossom trail across Bass Strait to mainland south-eastern Australia.

Swifty faces many threats and dangers, but she must return home. Will she make it?

Fly with Swifty in this beautifully illustrated story, and learn how to spot a swift parrot and help protect them.
