While I lurked down the back lane, this pair perched, drenched from bathing in the nearby creek.
At about 22 cm, the Musk Lorikeet is smaller than the Rainbow Lorikeet you’ve seen on my blog. (I had to go to the bird book for identification.) I know it is the Musk Lorikeet because of the tipped beak. The book said it is an uncommon nomad in woodlands and drier forests in the south-east mainland – mainly west of the Great Dividing Range – and Tasmania.
Not long after they noticed me and flew away, I spotted this pair, too.
Thanks for looking. I hope you have a great weekend planned.
Do have a good one.
