rainbow lorrikeet..Get Outa Here






We share breakfast every morning and if I am not on the ball a very raucous mob of scotty parrots.....and when delivering breakfast if late, honey and whole grain bread, snaps at the fingers...the wretch..no table manners whatsoever....

Margaret these little fellows make me laugh....they are like "bodgies" in amongst the oh so polite galahas, kings and rosellas who are so restrained and these gaudy little fellows rule

Hey I am supposed to be the insomniac...

You do have quite a noise with the birds up your way. The white and black galahs fly over our house some evenings, they don't stop of course :)

I always stay up late, always have done and when I go to bed, I sleep like a log. I consider myself lucky in that respect.

The Robin Redbreast is a small bird, I did take a photo of it from a distance and shall post it to my blog over the weekend.

His colours are so vibrant. You are lucky to have so many around but they can get a bit noisy. I have them when the trees are in bloom but they don't come close.Great shot.

Thank you Diane...I actually did not take the shot a woman who was caring for my mother while I was still at work borrowed my camera and shot the rowdy mob. She was envious of the closeness of the parrots. I told until I can afford a super lens for wildlife photography I have to bribe, sn eak up on the animals to get a closeup
