Rainbow Lorikeets Outback


Rainbow Lorikeet  Trichoglossus haematodus

For one so thoughtful of the neighbours' peace and quiet I found myself with a technicoloured quandry this morning. After many a fly over the local Rainbow Parikeets have finally found our bird seed. Truth be known they were always the goal-species but now that they're here I'm nervous about the inevitable dawn 'chorus' which sounds more like a pig eating a cat. Then, as my ten-year-old fishing buddy, Darcy, so eloquently put it, I'd 'be nervous about taking a shit!'.

wow! I couldn't imagine a bird that colourful really exists (good description of the sound by the way).
