These rakish little fellas were holding on tight to the electricity lines for fear of being blown away by the really strong gusty winds yesterday morning.. the Australian ringneck parrot or 'twenty eight' as it's commonly known because of its distinctive 'twentee-eight' call and the red band above his beak. This is the first time I've taken shots of the twenty eight, not quite as colourful as the Rainbow lorikeet that I've shown many times before, but certainly not plain :)
They're not the best shots.. had to grab my long lens real quick and they were pretty high up. Did you ever wonder, like moi, why birds don't get electrocuted on electricity wires.. well here's the answer! As one, they slowly turned their backs to me.. I get it, I hate my photo being taken also :) Happy Thursday, take care..
