Riley, I'd tuck that one in my suitcase.  I bird sat a Greater Sulfur-crested once for a few weeks and he flew onto a hanging lamp and bit right through the wiring - it was turned off at the time!  ;)

You lucky guy!  Isn't amazing what is wild there flying around!

Jack,
these are wild, freely flying all over.
the one for pets are demanding, requiring companionship constantly.  i encountered one at a store which took off my cuff button and effortlessly bit the button into pieces.  can easily chew off a finger!

so, i left australia (3 weeks) and just arrived HongKong, waiting for luggages.
should have a few more bird photo to show, soon!

I took out the Tamron 100-400mm + M5 for a test drive. If the bird is large enough to frame and not moving too fast, the combo is a lightweight joy to use. The focus is spot on every time with no need to AFMA. The centre of the lens is very, very sharp at 400mm, up to 400mm DO II standards. The sharpness is good to the edge of the APS-C edge and not too bad at the extremes of FF. Here is a handsome chaffinch.
