Cool looking bird and a very nice close up portrait.

Nice shots, 1st one is the pick for me.

Just one word of advice, don't let that thing near the front of your lens. I saw one in a pet shop once and it was very friendly so it sat on my shoulder. In 5 seconds flat he put his beak into my 5mm curb link silver chain and opened up the join in the link and it fell to the floor...Some serious power in those beaks.
I decided to buy a male ringneck instead.

Yes, there is amazing power in those beaks! This Alexandrian is my bird and is very used to seeing the camera (as are my Macaws). I would never try getting this close with a bird that wasn't mine - that could be disastrous!
