Great shots, we've got a few of them now in my area but I haven't had the luck to get a picture of them.

A lot of Rosella's and Ring-necked parakeets escaped from a zoo a few years back and they are slowly showing up. In some places driving the pidgeons away.

Some very nice shots despite the difficult lighting and intervening vegetation. And some very interesting-looking birds too!

Nice looking bird, nothing that colorful around here. Thanks for the reminder of the Q forum here, I had forgotten all about it. It was rarely used when I first got my Q.

Nice photos of a fascinating looking bird. What fun it would be to see something that colorful in the wild around here!

Seems I've missed a lot of good shots this week. Between thunderstorms and being busy all week, I haven't been around much.

Very nice images. You did a great job capturing it between the leaves.
