This very hungry bird is an Australian Lorikeet … a purple-headed beauty gorging at the feeding trough. I love the magnificent colours – especially the purple – of these cheeky birds, they look so vibrant as they flit from branch to branch.
I had to get out of bed very early for my date with the Lorikeets. Watching them suck on the ‘candy floss’ (cotton candy for my American friends) was very entertaining. They preferred to eat than to perch still while I tried to focus!
