I did leave you a message :) I found the feathers and colours on mine the hardest part but then it depends if you are wanting to make it look very realistic or just get a general sense of the textures and colours.

This is beautiful the breed's colors are just plain gorgeous. We have a pet Senegal Parrot named Tinker and his colors are quite close to this one's. Though Tinker has Grey feathers on his head, a silver beak, Yellow Eyes (Amber yellow), and his belly is more Yellow with orange where this one has blue. It's striking how much color they share in the feathers.

It's not the same breed but this looks quite close and if I had to guess it is a relative to the Senegal. May I ask how large this fellow was? Tinker is small enough to walk down my arm and sit in my hand if he didn't prefer his cage that is but something makes me think this one is a bit if not a lot bigger.

I'm not a real good judge but I would say if it was standing straight about 10 inches tall. I don't know your type to be able to compare, but these are a lot smaller than the cockatoos I get - sulphur crested cockatoos, if you are familiar with them.

That's about the size Tinker is so yeah they must be a related breed. Yeah I know a bit about that type of Cockatoo not much but I have seen them and they are much bigger than Tinker is.

Thanks Mary-Anne, I've lived with these birds around me for about 4 years but not really had the chance to get good photos of them as they have been too shy. I only just commented to another Australian about a week before this that they never visit my bird bath - and in time for my new camera down they came!!

I Have hundreds of these visit our garden most days, sadly they are very noisy and aggressive Birds to each other here.
Find the Scaly-breasted Lorikeets that come with them are better Birds to each other though a more placid Bird,.
Enjoy that new camera Hug

I get lots up int he trees but only a few at a time in my yard and they are never aggressive with other - but they will try (and succeed) to bully birds twice their size like the cockatoos. It's actually funny to watch them front up to the cockatoos and they back away! Don't get the scaly breasted ones here though they were at my last place only about 5 km from here. Same with the King Parros - they have never come in here but were really common at my last place.
