CommentI have chosen this photo as I feel it highlights the long-billed character of this bird and shows the bird using it's long narrow-tipped bill to extract seeds from its primary source of food - the nut of the marri tree. Another interesting feature is the manner in which the bird holds the marri nut. I believe the pink tinge to the eye-ring indicates that it is a male.
EquipmentNikon D500 with Nikon 200-500 lens f/7.1, 1/2000. ISO 800, FL = 500, handheld
