Is lunch ready yet?

The Rainbow Lorikeet

These beautiful birds are free. I love it when they choose to visit me.

They come in pairs to visit my nectar bearing grevillea, callistemon and correa flowers. At times, up to 10 pairs descend into the garden.

Occasionally I put out some sunflower seeds for them as a treat. Sometimes, if I have not left them seeds for a while, they come to my window and chirp and scream at me until I serve them lunch.

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
