Here’s some more examples of the small birds that graze in the low-lying Frogs Hollow field.
This shot is pretty close
There must have been close to 20 in the one area this day.
Then I caught some more parrots going through the higher grass down by the river.
As you can see, what was initially a good shot turned into a shot of a bird’s back only.
Its the males that are the beautiful colour.
So you can see them better, here’s some images I made when I was living on the north-east side of Melbourne next to the Yarra River.
The lovely males are easy to spot.
The plain females are not so easy to see as they blend in with the grass. Since they always seem to graze in pairs, it’s the males that I spot first.
This image of a female is probably the best shot I’ve made so far.
