Used the Sigma Hyperzoom (28-300mm) and DS. These parrots are feral in Perth. Belong over east. Pretty but noisy. Was eyeing grapes on vine!

Another photo. Used noise ninja for first time. Uncropped. Iso 200, 1/250, F9.5:1

i guess by feral you mean not indigenous. we have the monk parakeet that's the same.. the electric company hates them but doesn't harm them.

Lorikeets are such cute birds, and fun to watch, but I've only seen them in aviaries. You are so lucky with your unusual, pretty birds.

Yes, we are fortunate in Perth with bird life and fantastic wildfloweres. Usually if I pick up a camera these lorikeets take off. This time I was about to start painting a corner of the house and theattraction of grapes was too strong for the birds.
