Thanks so much for this David. The parrots really are superb and you have done a great job with the video. 

Did you see any sign of the feeding/jumping display I wrote to the group about last week? No-one replied to that message and I am left wondering if I had an aberrant parrot or else saw something not commonly seen. I have looked at a few books since and found no mention of this behaviour. The display lasted a couple of minutes or at least a minute, with much feeding between jumping. The closest information I found said that Superb Parrots can be trained to dance.

These lovely birds were much in evidence there this morning.  Family groups could be found feeding on lerps on car park trees.  I have placed a video on my vimeo site at -
