Not a brilliant photograph but I find these birds tricky to capture. They know when you're pointing something at them and always manage to fly off just before I focus. Here is one from this morning on a eucalyptus tree. 200 F2.8 + 1.4ext.

Dave, nice catch. Since Southern CA was once arid, I assume that the wild Parrot population originated with imported birds? Amazing that they have been able to preserve their genetic lineages.
