I have been observing dad sitting on nest past few weeks. The Monday before last there were two little white balls of fluff, appears one did not make it, good to see other chick getting bigger.

And a familiar face, rarely miss finding her (and her mate) if I go looking.

I have been trying out my new GX-8 with and old FD 500mm mirror lens on the visitors to our yard, still prefer my 5D3 but the reach of the 500mm is great

Thanks, I missed out on Powerful Owl chicks so was not going to miss these.

I think the larger chick is human trained by now, seems more curious than alarmed when it sees me.

I thought it was having a stretch, maybe about to venture out onto the branch, but then realized what it was doing.

IMAGE: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/673/22577182970_026729a254_o.jpg

Starting to get crowded up there.

Huddled up in the rain this morning.

glad they arnt near me as I would be camped under the damn tree 24/7 waiting for the right light to get both of them looking out with one/two eyes like you got in #1 and #4 and #1 of an earlier post ..And going by the way they are situated in the tree it looks like its pretty tricky getting the right light to counter the severe backlight which comes with shooting upwards not to mention getting a clear shot through the branches! ..... I would be getting a ladder if it was me and proberly scare them away in doing so hahahah...


I would love to see more eye shots of them looking at you if you can get them ....Got the potential to be a super winner shot if you can get around the light and clear shot issues..

I have considered a ladder but from experience I know it's very unnerving looking through a viewfinder while on a ladder. Don't want to end up like Molly Meldrum :)

It's been interesting watching the chicks develop. The larger one seems used to me, the smaller one still looks at me curiously.

Larger chick checking me out, notice the bug on the branch above and to the right.

IMAGE: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/606/22841275866_1a76fa335d_o.jpg

Mouth open hoping the bug will land in it's mouth.

Yesterday two couples of the paleheaded Rosella were fighting about a tree. It went really serious, never thought such a nice bird could fight so. (The second image is not sharp, but to give you just an idea about the fighting.)
