What do Noisy Miners and Rainbow Lorikeets have in common?

If we’re speaking gastronomically, here’s the answer. They both seem to love feasting on Banksia flowers.

Not so long ago I spotted these birds, each breakfasting on the same bush in our local park. They had splendid views to enjoy, too: they overlooked the river.

    The plant looks like it should be used for cleaning bottles. The birds have given it a monks tonsure haven’t they.

      I’m glad you liked them, Odie!
      And I am having a lovely weekend, with dancing last night and competing at the Swimming Races this morning. 🙂 Hope yours is great, too!

    Nice shot, Margaret! 🙂 I think they’re flossing.

    Very interesting, these little fellas. I love the colors on the parrot, is that Charles? Have a wonderful day 🙂

        My sincerest apology, I realized that your beautiful parrot’s name is Albert the second.

    That’s okay, Jeanette 🙂 They’re each names of British royalty. 🙂 Our Albert is a much smaller bird. I’ll make a post about him when the photos are loaded into the computer. 🙂
