Pink African Grey Parrots
Pink patches in African Greys (which, as you might guess, are normally grey) began as a naturally occurring color morph. Over the years, breeders ended up with 100% pink specimens. The first all-pink Greys sold for over $150,000.
Just about to go back to our accommodation after a good morning on the beach and spotted this cheeky Rainbow Lorikeet hiding in a hollow log. Was able to get pretty close and get a few good shots with the 105mm before my partner spooked the little fella. Taken with Canon 400D - 25-105mm lens Shelly Beach, Hervey Bay, Queensland. Australia.
NE Brazil: Maroon-bellied Parakeet
Taking a momentary break from the N. India series to post one of my favorite shots from the NE Brazil trip. This species is really a SE Brazil species but reaches as far north as the southern part of Bahia, which is where this was taken at the Serra Bonita Reserve. This gem of a place, a private reserve, preserves a fragment of the once mighty Mata Altantica (Atlantic Forest). That is now mostly gone except for places like Serra Bonita. Nov. 2011. Better in black. Press "L".
