When I heard the familiar call outdoors I hurried upstairs to set up my camera and firstly took a number of photos, unseen, through the tinted window glass (didn't have to use these here). Not expecting that I'd manage to go one step further and get away with it (for the following).
this had pretty much been the point when I'd actually slid the window open, ever so slowly
you can't tell me he didn't know I was up to something; standing as best I could behind the camera, with tele-converter lens, on tripod
I'd love to photograph them when feeding on the taller crepe-myrtles here, with the bush-corridor in the background, but the tops of those shrubs are pretty much in line with the window, too close, and I doubt they'd stick around for that one. I won't give up though!
Information on the Eastern Rosella is here on Birds in Backyards website. Look to the lower right-hand column, and there you'll find the Eastern Rosella call.
