Yes... I have not idea which specie it is, but is very friendly.

Look like a eagle.

Re: A mad Parakeet...

Neat shot..nice color.

I would crop the top a bit though as it would only gives his eyes  more prominence and less fence  distraction.

Thanks for sharing-brian

In the US a parakeet is really a budgerigar. There are several species called parakeets that look nothing like a budgerigar.

Re: A mad Parakeet...

I do believe that is a Rainbow Lorikeet we have lots at the zoo here in Oklahoma City. They are very docile and fun to feed.

The second one is with my good ole A700 which I still have. I think I am going to sell it though

Yes... are those!!!

It was with the 70-200mm to 200mm and f/4. It is a great lens but has a little limitation as no too sharp at 200mm and specially when the object is too close to the minimum focus distance.

Thanks everyone...

Re: A mad Parakeet...

Rainbow Lorikeets live here on the east coast of Australia in their millions.

They screech and squawk as they swoop across the sky and when they roost for the night in the trees around my back yard the noise can deafening. Impossible to catch with my A77 as they streak across the sky like bullets, but always a bedazzling sight when the sun hits them in flight.
