Daylight was fading when I took these but I am quite happy with the outcome, even at higher ISO’s than I like. These were edited on my iPad Pro 12.9 using LR

When I fist started watching a rainbow lorikeet poking around in this tree hollow, I figured it was shopping for an apartment.

Then a while later a New Holland Honeyeater hopped in there, and I thought there was some competition in the property market.

But then a Crimson rosella came along, and I couldn't believe what was happening. Then I realised: it wasn't real estate, it was the local hole-in-the-wall bar!

That's very interesting and lovely to see thanks. Never experienced that.
Always nice to see birds in their habitats.

PS, I like that hat Melanie.
Did you add to it or it came as such?

I've been tempted to abandon trying to photograph them and just watch with binoculars, but here I am, still plugging away!

Thanks for the compliment - it's an Akubra traveller (packable/ crushable), to which I added a scarf and pheasant feather I bought in New Norfolk last year. I loved that quirky Tasmanian town! I was looking at my photos from that trip earlier today, wondering if I'll ever brave the ferry again...

Yes New Norfolk and that part of lower midlands has some interesting and fascinating older settlement history.

I did think it looked Acubra.

Ferry! Crumbs! You'll get pilloried. It's A Ship :laugh:
At least it's not, "Oh just slipping over to Vic on The Pot" (Princess of Tasmania). Don't think it got called by its real name much by us Taswegians :)

Thanks for the kind comment Richard.
I was just able to get that shot, when the Kookaburra was attacked by the other and in an instant they were both gone.
Think its breeding time ATM but I would put my money on the Kookaburra if there was a big fracas.
