Melbourne / Australia / Birdlife
41 images

For the last few months I've been taking winter walks through Royal Park on the edge of the Melbourne CBD. It's an often overlooked part of the Melbourne green scene, hidden between the hospitals on Flemington Parade and the Melbourne Zoo. On any given day you can find hundreds and hundreds of beautiful parrots. Galahs by the dozen gathering in the bigger trees, plus Rainbow Lorikeets and Musk Lorikeets grazing through the flowering gums. These images were taken with a Lumix G9 and their wonderfully compact 100-400mm lens.
