Lorikeets are back


The Rainbow Lorikeets went missing while the bee swarm was in residence. Its good to have them back and feeding on the nectar of the bottlebrush trees.

What a colourful sight Lavender! Those Lorikeets are very clever in regards to the bees, in fact clever about everything heehee. Healthy looking parrot too, must be all that sweet nectar helping it glow :) Upside down in Australia!
