The Rainbow Lorikeets have been especially fun additions to the backyard. They are so gregarious in both temperament and feather.
This photo is blurry because the where shaking themselves to remove as much water as possible. Then when they finished shaking themselves they began grooming themselves.
Then they spent the next little while grooming each other. We couldn't stop taking photos of them.
Then last week a family turned up and 'occupied' the bird feeder - two adults and two babies who, once they could manage to get from the tree into the feeder, sat in the middle and squawked to be fed. Notice how the babies have black eyes and darker beaks and the adults red eyes and red beaks?
We were perplexed as to why they would have big babies at this time of year.
