Those seem to be pretty good shots for such a long distance, Julie. I don't know Australian birds but it does look to be some sort of parrot - Australia has lots of species of those, doesn't it?

This one looks to be at a nesting cavity. I think if you go back there you should be able to get closer and if you are patient it will come back to the cavity. You should be able to get some pretty good shots.

I would need a very large ladder, in a tree about 20 plusfeet up:-)Yes this is some kind of parrot, we call them 28s here but it's not their real name.

Pretty bird. I bet they look very colorful in the sunlight.

That omnipresent Australianattribute of gnarled, twisted, and tangled backdrops sure adds a nice flavor to a photo, especially a colorful one like this.
