Out to Lunch : A Rainbow Lorikeet

20 Jan

One of the most potent joys of living near a bushland park lies in the wonderful opportunities it presents for bird observation and photography.

Recently I was able to observe a beautiful Rainbow Lorikeet eating nectar from a Banksia tree. This all happened beside the river baths where I swim almost every day from Spring to late Autumn.

Don’t you agree that Australian parrots rank highly in the scale of the world’s most engaging birds?

    Beautiful photograph, Margaret. We don’t see lorikeets here, although everyone else seems to. Maybe we just don’t have the right plants. Lisa

      Thank you, Lisa. šŸ™‚ The lorikeets love our neighbours’ Grevillea, as well as the other natives in the park. šŸ™‚
