I like the last one in the first set. That crest is funny, and a nice shade of yellow.

Great shots MA. Must be nice to see then occurring naturally as I've only ever seen them in cages or at best fully domesticated.

Thanks Q1 and M.

It is cool to see them naturally. I'd say I'd see some on almost every mountain bike ride I do and several road rides as well. Today they returned a few times.

Beautiful birds and they are well known by bird owners to have ear piercingly loud screeches as I am sure you can attest. :)

Oh yeh. Imagine 8 of them!! Thankfully only 1 or 2 would go off at a time. They can really get on your nerves when a flock gets going. The sound goes right through you!

Yep, they sure are noisy when they get going.

this is a great set. I really enjoyed looking at them. I love the one with the bird looking into the tree stump.
