red-fronted parrot in olive tree
Every year during September or October, when the olive trees are producing fruit, the air at Kijabe is filled with the sounds of red-fronted parrots squawking at each other as they feed. Normally it is difficult to get a good shot because they are perched at the top of tall olive trees. This one was feeding on the lower branches of a tree significantly downhill from me. Kijabe, Kenya.
