Heat and flies were well worth another visit to the Scarlet Chested Parrot site 
this morning.  Hours later at aprox high noon I flushed a male (more than 
likely same one as yesterday)  from feeding site in low shrubbery.   The 
terrific thing about this bird is that once you freeze and pose no threat he 
goes back to the task of rapidly shoving as many seed pods into his crop as 

This time I pushed my luck and tried to get ultra close for filming but this 
resulted in him keeping shrubbery between him and my camera lens during almost 
the entire 10 min I was with this gorgeous little male.  I did manage a short 
film clip of him in open though so count the whole thing day 2 of miracle 
interaction with a rare and beautiful species!

Thanks to all for the heartwarming congratulatory emails!
