On my fence: rainbow lorikeets

Yesterday, when I put out some seed and bread the lorikeets were already among the blossoms in the gum tree, unbeknownst to me. They squawked, letting me know so I stayed and coaxed them down. I still had my camera phone in my pocket from walking the dog.

I have to move that pond from there as it gets too much litter from the gum tree. I thought it might, which is why I never finished off around the bottom pond. I’ve seen some of the little honey-eaters and the sparrows use the middle pond.

Have a good day.  🙂

    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I was excited to see a cardinal at my feeder today and he was no where near as colorful as your feathered friends!

      I’m still thrilled whenever I see them – they’ve been about for a few years but coming to my fence for less than that. Your cardinals are breathtaking against snow in images, so red! I can’t imagine how good they look like in real life. Thanks for dropping in, Nancy.

      It does, Sue. And I was thinking of building myself a comfy bird-hide just behind those shrubs. I’m thinking of putting it near the front door, it’ll be closer to a power point for the fountain pump and will get less leaves and bark in it. The Manna gum is dropping tiny gum-nut caps in it at the moment. It’ll be safer up that end for the birds, from wandering cats, being enclosed on three sides and open space on the last.

      Thanks Vashti. I wasn’t thinking when I laid out the bread and seed – I should have used the sunny bits of the fence! 🙂

      I’ve loved birds all my life, but have only been feeding them and taking photos since I started blogging a few years ago. Having the fence so close to the house is handy!
