    Have not seen your 28 one at all but I am not sure if it is the same bird as the Port Lincoln Parrot, more than happy for them to be totally different.
    The others I have seen as we have them here also though the Hardhead you do have to get bush a little.

      Hi Ralph. The 28's are only in WA and a close cousin to the Port Lincoln. The pure 28's have a green front but mixed breeds have some yellow bellow the chest, similar to the Port Lincoln.

      Thanks for that information I have looked for it but not made a real strong effort though. I would like to get both as the one Lincoln one doesn't up up this way and you know where your ones goes so that is a longer trip to get it..

      The Twenty Eight parrot belongs to the genus barnardius, along with the Mallee Ringneck, Port Lincoln Parrot, and Cloncurry Parrot. They all have a green body and a yellow ring or collar around their necks and all referred to as Australian Ringnecks.

    Good variety in this set Isac.

    #1 is an excellent pose with a good clean background but it does look a little soft. I suspect there might have been rather poor light on the bird. I'm also curious as to what the orange colour in the bg is.

    #2 is very nice with good colour. They are pretty little birds.

    #3 Good to see them breeding and ducklings always have lots of appeal. I've never seen Hardhead ducklings around here - only plenty of Pacific Black and Wood Ducks.

      Cheers Alan. Lousy light, very dark, rainy and overcast here for the last week! The orange is a paved driveway across the road from the park.
      More babies will be arriving soon towards spring, so I hope to capture a few.
