"Please feed me!"

This male King Parrot sometimes comes & asks for a feed & after putting seed in the feeder for him he was chased away by the big bully cockies, so this is the response I got from him, coming to me & asking me for more. (the left side cropped only)



And a close crop of the above, because I liked it.



Olympus E-M1 & 40- 150 Pro lens with MC14.

He is a cracker, Ross, what sort of size is he? He looks on the small size?

Thanks. These two photos from December 2013 can give you a good idea of their size (with Rainbow Lorrikeets getting in on the act there too).

Beautiful colours, and great detail. They seem very tame!

Thanks. Not exactly tame really, but are used to getting fed by some of the locals obviously.

OK, just because I can, here's a bit more of the story with this occasion.

He's now getting a little desperate because the cockies are still at his food.



He's now flown back to near the feeder & seems to be saying, "Well, don't just look at me! Chase those other birds away!"


He's now checking out the seed dropped on the deck.


And if it is safe to go to the feeder.


"Ah, back to it!"


(Narrator, with a warning tone) "But there is still a cocky watching!"
