IRNs in the "wild" and one Alexandrine

I'm hoping this link will work for you all! Please let me know. I presume it's flock of wild IRNs and one Alexandrine.

MissK, I thought you'd like it! So I had to try to post it. A friend posted it so it came up in my feed.

Now l have seen it, but not sure you have the count right Molossus, divide the picture into squares and count how many in each square then multiply by the number of squares :?

We have a 3000 sq ft garden with many fruit trees. Batches of ringnecks and bats come and spoil the fruits every year. Their favourite are guava trees. As soon as we hear RN shouting, we take out bamboo sticks and hunt them away. Slingshots are useless because it is almost impossible to spot a RN inside the green leaves.

Wild RNs are the hardest to catch. They only sit and eat fruits on the top layer.

Great picture!!

Bet the farmer is not to thrilled, but hey you put out a bird buffet what do you expect. Its like putting out a Chinese buffet in the middle of a busy town center when the pubs are kicking out with no one watching it, Its going to get eaten!! :mrgreen:
