I wandered outside this morning to take some photos of the gorgeous bottlebrush that are flowering presently. The colour is wonderful. While I was there, these lorikeets landed in the tree, helping themselves to nectar and not really caring about me… too much.
I haven’t seen this lorikeet before so I was very excited to find out what they were. My book, ‘Field Guide to the birds of Australia’ tells me that it’s a Musk Lorikeet.
This morning we also have lots of Rainbow Lorikeets around too.
