Is this my best side

By artgaz1062  
Thought I would share our friendly rainbow lorikeets. Ladynewbury uploaded an amazing photo the other day. These guys are really friendly but need to be fed loriwet from a pet shop or fruit such as pears, apples or grapes. They have special tongues for lapping nectar from flowers bread and seed can damage this causing the birds to be undernourished, Bread also can lodge in there crops making it harder for them to feed there young.
PLEASE DO NOT FEED ANY BIRD BREAD

Excellent capture. They are two beauties that I am not so lucky to see in London...
We do get wild parakeets that come and feed from our hands in Hyde Park ... Isabel GrinGrinGrinGrin

They are true beauties Gail. Thanks for educating us on their diet, it's too easy to kill with kindness. Pam
