Wonderful colourful birds you have there, you would think this would be a disadvantage when it comes to survival. Nice work MA.

Lovely images MA...I especially dig the last one!:)
Are they after nectar or fruit or seeds?

As I said on Flickr! Great images. It's almost hard to believe those colours are real!

The colours are not only real IG, I didn't do a thing to them either. Levels I think only. Absolutely no saturation etc. They really are that bright.

It's 6.20am here and I can hear them out there in the tree this morning again.

Greg ... I guess in a flock, with all that colour it's hard for a predator to pick out a single bird. On the other hand maybe it just gets them more sex?

Casil ... nectar mostly. They will eat seeds also though.

Thanks everyone for the comments :)

Beautiful specimens, caught so very well in their natural environment.
Love that last one also, perfect catch on the eye.

Sigh. Makes me wish previous generations hadn't killed off our Carolina parakeets. Dumb asses.
