Wow! You have such exotic looking birds compared to ours. I love the last picture - are your birds really that tame? Wonderful!

Wonderful shots, excellent detail, exposure and composition, keep them coming.

You've got my juices flowing; I will be visiting Australia next April and look forward to photographing your wonderful birds, animals and fauna.

The Parrots at O'Reillys Rainforest Resort are as they put feed out for them daily but the others are all most definitely not. you have to be in right spot at right time and quick instead of just staring in awe as I was with many yesterday.

Gorgeous capture of some (to me) very exotic species. Thanks for sharing the fruits of your patience and skill!

Thank you all. I am definitely going back now that I know where it is and I am determined to catch all the ones I stared at instead of getting on camera the first time.
