Green Rosellas are always welcome visitors to the garden. I occasionally had them visit in Geeveston and I see them a lot around Sisters Beach. This one popped in to snack on one of the big ferns in the back garden. I spotted him out of my bedroom window and sneaked off to get my big lens.
These were taken on maximum zoom which is 300mm. He stayed quite a long time and if he spotted me watching him through the window he didn’t care. I say him, but actually I have no idea if it was a male or female bird. I love the way parrots use their claws as hands when they are snacking.
That sounds like a GREAT lens. I have one Sigma lens. I’d have more, but they only make one for my kind of camera.
That is a beautiful bird. I shoot everything through windows and they are often not especially clean. Surprisingly, the cameras seem to see through the dirt and dust and find the birds. Really beautiful!

I was a bit worried about whether the window would be too dirty , it’s on the second floor, no way I can clean it. However, it doesn’t seem to show up. I don’t like to open windows to take pictures because the noise would scare them away.
