Bird of the Week Challenge: 9th June - parrots

Hey guys

The honeyeater challenge did so well last week so this time lets go with the Parrots!

Guidelines:

  • You can only post photos of birds whose common name ends in parrot - e.g. Red-rumped Parrot. Other parrot species (lorikeets, cockatoos etc) cannot be posted.
  • Each species can only be posted once by any participant (and only one photo per participant for each species). If a species appears more than once then the subsequent post will be removed - e.g there can only be one photo posted of an Orange-bellied Parrot (gosh I would love an OBP shot too guys...).
  • You take part multiple times but you must wait until other people have posted before entering again. If you post within that frequency then your post will be removed.

Hi Holly, I have a photo of an Orange-bellied Parrot, but I took it a Healesville Sanctuary, where they have a breeding program. I won't post birds that I didn't see in the wild. Maybe as the last photo, if nobody else has got one?

Ok sometimes you cant always get close enough for a good photo and this is one of those but it was my one and only time I have seen one of these parrots and I had to take it while still seated in the car. Elegant Parrot.

Female Eclectus Parrot.

(just a question, would you like to see the male Eclectus? Simply because it looks vastly different? I'd better ask, before somebody quotes the rules and tells me that I intentionally brake them by posting the same species twice.Can't have that.)

Get over it. I'm sure the moderator will be happy to make a decision. Nice parrot.

Sorry I didn't see this yesterday guys so I could make a call earlier - and sorry ML - rules are just one photo per species. More than happy for you to post both in a thread in the best photo section.

 

You have given me an idea for this coming week's challenge though!

Thanks Rick for encouraging me to get over it. There I go again. Rules are rules, and you'll know it if you step over the line.

In this case I find this very narrow minded, as both sexes look vastly different.

 So the rules of the challenge were clear:

  • Each species can only be posted once by any participant (and only one photo per participant for each species). If a species appears more than once then the subsequent post will be removed - e.g there can only be one photo posted of an Orange-bellied Parrot (gosh I would love an OBP shot too guys...).
  • You take part multiple times but you must wait until other people have posted before entering again. If you post within that frequency then your post will be removed.

Narrow minded?  to stick to the rules of a challenge?  Doesn't seem to bother any one else but you Araminta  ....   The Male King Parrot looks different from a female but that is no reason to post the species twice  ....

And looks like your OBP was posted a bit early too ..... but I am sure you already know that .

As the saying goes, there is one in every crowd ... but for the sake of the challenges which are for everyone's enjoyment I wish there wasn't .  it is so unfair to every other member here.

What took you so long ?

I was well aware of the rules, but felt encouraged by the remark of another member , telling me to get over it. Shouldn't have listened to Rick. At my age I should know better........

Thanks Adrienne.

Why get so worried about it? It's a great photo of a Orange Bellied Parrot, and the week's almost out without one anyway. 

Lovely photos everyone! Looking forwards to next week's challenge; by the hint it should be a good one.

Back to the bird photos now. The rules are there for a reason, if they are not followed, the posts are removed.

 

If someone else posts another parrot then ML can repost her OBP.

That leaves me with a decent pic of a 28 Parrot and a poor pic of a Blue-winged Parrot
