Following on from yesterdays post, this is the male Mulga Parrot (Psephotus varius). The Twitchathon finished up yesterday and my team counted a total of 104 different bird species over the two days. We were a long way off winning the event after hearing reports that some teams sighted over 170 species! Anyway, it was great fun and I'm really looking forward to next years event.

The colors hurt my eyes :)

Such vibrant colours! Wonderful shot David - 104's not a bad effort!

Such beautiful colors and crisp detail!
I still can't believe you have these birds wild in Austrailia. So incredible!
