So, the Red-collared Lorikeet (Trichoglossus rubritorquis) is only found in the wooded areas of Northern Australia. The first part of the formal name refers to the birds 'hairy tongue' which it uses to feed on nectar and pollen. This is probably what the birds in the pictures are doing.
These birds were rather distant when I took the pictures, but the images really do show what you can do with a few megapixels and a bit of sensible cropping. These pictures were taken near the Mamukala bird hide in the Northern Territory.
Although I would have loved to get some real 'screen filler' shots of these birds, I do rather like the way you can see these birds in the habitat.
These picture really do need to be looked at in 'full screen' mode, which will happen if you click on the image.
