Swift Parrot, Mt Majura2 (55)a

I went out to Mt Majura for the second time, and spent a fruitful 4 hours watching these beautiful birds.

 

Most of these photos were taken in the 1 minute period when they came in to drink. The rest of the time they were very high up in the canopy, feeding on lerps and preening.

 

This is my favourite photo from all of the Swift Parrot ones. It is one of the sharpest, and the colours of the bird really come out.

 

View large size, is best.
