At last we got a good photo of a lorikeet in one of the trees that surround us here! These huge arching flowers are really attractive to the lorikeets. Most afternoons at around 2pm the noise is deafening with them flitting from tree to tree. Most of these trees are about a hundred feet high and there are always flocks of about 50 birds flying from tree to tree! In most countries of the world these birds are carefully bred and kept in aviaries or cages. How lucky we are!
