You can also some small pieces of dander flying off - look just to the right of it's bill. I was surprised to see such small objects in the shots, considering I'm about 15-18 feet away.

I hope you enjoy this series!

Cheers,

It's not often you see them sitting still! And I've never seen one grooming (or is it just scratching?). Very cool!

Hi Jeannie,

Thanks and it's simply scratching that I captured here. I'll try to post some actual grooming shots soon!

Best,
Marc
