    Hooded Parrot

    Psephotus dissimilis
    10 May 2017
    Pine Creek, NT
    Camera Details.
    Brand/Model: Canon EOS-1D X Mark II
    Lens: EF500mm f/4L IS II USM +1.4x III
    Camera Settings
    ISO: 1600
    F-Stop: f/6.3
    Shutter Speed: 1/1000
    Exposure Bias/Metering/Flash: Nil/Evaluative/Nil
    Technique: Gitzo GT5531S Tripod with Wimberley Gimbal Head.

    Notes: Set up a perch on the stand of a leaking sprinkler where a few of these parrots were taking an evening drink. This partially coloured up male and fully coloured male couldn’t agree who should have access to the best new perch in town!

    Great shot of the interaction Graham. Young buck testing his strength. Pine Creek sounds like a bit of a birding hotspot.

    Beautiful shot of the adult and the younger bird Graham. Great interaction captured,lovely background, super image all round. There seem to be quiet a few moulting birds around when we were there a couple of days ago.

    They are a pugnacious bird and it looks like the older one is telling off the younger one for being seen near him with such a bad do! Lovely capture Graham at your usual fantastic standard. Wilson
