CommentI have seen a lot of immature Noisy Friarbirds around home in the last few weeks. They have been notable by their loud cackling and frequent, almost constant visits to my birdbath. The seem quite sociable although conflict sometimes arises. They also seem to like 'safety in numbers'. Sometimes. there's barely room for anything else at the bird bath. I notice we have hardly any photos of immature birds of this species in our library. While these birds have the red irises of adult birds, they show the white scalloping on the back characteristic of immatures.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 112mm 1/4000 sec, f/7.1, ISO 1600. Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting. All noise reduction turned off in DPP. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where noise reduction was applied to the whole image using Neat Image plugin for PSE. . Subtle adjustments made to midtone contrast and to control highlights and shadows. Subtle addition of saturation also applied. Sharpened after resizing for upload.
