Day 275 / 366 – Musk Lorikeet

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.

– Musk lorikeet –

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.

  1. I’ve not seen this type of parrot before either Robyn. Hope someone can identify. Once we rescued a parrot that had knocked itself out after flying into our window. WIRES told us it was a rare parrot from…believe it or not…Tasmania!
