What a beautiful bird to start your Gallery with - a lovely picture too Doc.
@mzungu, I'd join as well. Is your username taken from Swahili?

Nice photo, jealous you have such colorful and fun visitors.
Thanks for the kind comments everyone. They (and the fruit bats) have certainly made a mess of the tree this year.
