    See them in the garden now and then, or on the roof of local houses but don't think I've ever seen one perched in a tree.

    Another excellent shot Steve. You seem to be finding backgrounds that compliment the birds. Do you carry them around with you?

    Very nice - shows more of the yellow plumage then you normally see.

    Nice capture Steve and yes it is unusual to see one away from water.
