Default Australian Rainbow Parakeet

A Rainbow Parakeet showed up on the balcony of the house. I find their colour amazing.
They are very friendly and I almost touched it.
Taken with Sony a550, kit lens.

Thanks Eetu, maggo85, simple and pbjunkiee.
I really liked this picture too, the vivid colour of the bird is amazing.
When the sun starts to set, you can hear them all around the trees, really nice place with nice birds.
I'll see if i can get some more pictures.
Thanks for the comments!
