    Guaiabero (Bolbopsittacus lunulatus)

    Sunday, February 15, 2015 marks the first death anniversary of mother. This also marks the break of my photography fast. I commit to craft photos more than once week here on end.

    The Guaiabero (Bolbopsittacus lunulatus) is a species of parrot in the Psittaculidae family, belonging to the monotypic genus Bolbopsittacus and closely related to the lovebirds (Agapornis) and hanging parrots (Loriculus). It is endemic to the Philippines. Its common name is derived from its reputation for eating guavas.

    Welcome back Dolina, I've wondered where you were. Sorry to hear about the passing of your mother last year, I don't think that there's much I could say to help, but just know you've got friends around here.

    That is a gorgeous picture. I always enjoy seeing the pictures you post. Thanks!

    So I've got a question, I know you're shooting with your 800mm, but how close are you able to get to a lot of these birds that you post? do you use a blind or anything?

    Thanks Justin. I tend to be able to get as close as 20m from them unless they're up in the air.

    I do not own a blind as these are difficult to source locally.
