Lorikeet feeding time

Early morning snack-fest

A flock of lorikeets love feasting on the roadside trees. Early morning and late afternoon are favoured times.

They don’t really love company (i.e. me) but stand quietly long enough and they’ve forgotten the intrusion.

The sap from these flowers must be pretty damn good. Don’t know what they are, but they are popular with a variety of birds it seems. Last night when we arrived back from our trip to Massimo’s Ice cream parlour, some thing with a really huge wingspan was busy feeding.

We disturbed it and as it flew to another branch, it’s great wings made a huge thunking sound. Wonderful!
