Joining in with the February Life in Colour Photo Challenge hosted by HeyJude at TRAVEL WORLD, I have a couple of photos of yellow birds.
This predominantly yellow, male Spottedbacked Weaver bird, collecting grass to weave his nest. Photo taken at a bird hide in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
There is lots of yellow in this immature male Olive-backed Sunbird that I spotted in Mackay, Queensland. It was sitting in a rather odd position in a shrub. When I first noticed it I thought it was injured, but it was actually sun bathing, and obviously hot, seeing as its beak was open!!
This Pale-headed Rosella was enjoying eating the seeds of the Butterfly Bush, Gaura, in the garden. The feathers on their backs are predominantly yellow.
The last two images are of the noisy Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, both taken in Yeppoon, Queensland. The second Cockatoo picture is unfortunately not good quality, but shows the slight yellow blush of feathers over his ear, and the lovely yellow crest. This Cockatoo was sitting on my washing line, within a meter or two of me, and unperturbed by the camera.
