[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
I probably would not have posted this picture alone, but I thought it could be interesting to put a picture of the female just after the male I posted yesterday to illustrate sexual dimorphism.
The photo has been cropped to reduce a little the white sky.
This female was not far from the male of yesterday, I guess it was the couple.

Note about species (same note than yesterday):
The Australian King Parrot (Alisterus scapularis) is a spectacular bird inhabiting in eastern Australia. It is found in forests not far from coasts. They feed on fruits, seeds or small insects.
There is a strong sexual dimorphism : the female has a green head, a green neck and a black beak. The male has scarlet head and neck, and a red-orange beak. Both sexes are about 43 cm.

Hi Philippe,
Nice composition,good colours but little sharp details.
Sorry Philippe, but cause be perhaps that converter.
Like Tina (it look like a painting !! TFS Tina)
Regards Jiri.

Bel oiseau, bonne position, mais un peu sombre et terne! Peut-être à cause de ton converter?
bonne journée
