Parakeet

By arhb      
Another parakeet - not sure if it's the same one as the last one I uploaded, as there are several residing quite close to where I live. . . there goes the neighbourhood ! : )
I've done similar things with the bg, as with the last one, and tried to work with the light during capture.
Something interesting I did observe whilst the parakeet was trying to use the seed-feeder and the caged nut-feeder, and that was the way in which the bird uses it's beak to move around the local proximity - quite unusual for your average (wannabe)garden bird.
It was also fairly settled andd relaxed, moving around the 'feeder' tree, whilst I shot away from a chair-hide, 5m away.
