User's notes

I was fortunate to see two groups of 3 glossies close to each other. In this group, I could not work out the relationships. There seemed to be perhaps two juveniles? And no adult female? The second photo seems to show feeding, which I observed a number of times. However, there was no calling from the bird being fed - in fact, the two birds in the first three photos were silent the whole time, whereas in the fourth photo, there was some calling.

Wow! Great image showing those coloured tail feathers and the composition with the two birds. Well done.

Thank you again! So fortunate to witness these three, and to see that expanse of stunning red in their tail - really lucky.
