Surrounded by nectar

By KangaGal
Most Aussies will know this noisy Rainbow lorikeet. They are lovely friendly birds but can be very screechy, particularly in a flock and when roosting. We are lucky to have them as garden visitors. If you are consistent they are pretty easy to hand feed.

At last the computer is running but this is temporary as we need a new motherboard and all the associated bits - what a rort this is with everything so quickly outdated.

Thankyou for such a good response to the leopard in particular and orangatan.

Cheers, Jenny

Well have so many lovely birds over there.
I have some Bourkes which have more sutle colouring than most.
Nice one.
