feeding frenzy

For the past couple of days we’ve had four or so King Parrots feasting on the fruit of a native tree and squabbling over who deserves the best spot and who should get the biggest fruit. The trees they are feasting on are just outside our living quarters. They certainly aren’t shy so make good photographic subjects. Unlike the Tawny Frogmouth, they advertise their presense with a breathtaking intensity of red, green and blue plumage.
