Rainbow Lorikeets.

I've posted photos of these birds before, but not since I've had my new camera, so I think these pics might be better than previous ones on this blog. We think they are the same pair of Lorikeets that have been coming nearly every day for years!

Crimson Rosella

An occasional visitor to the feeding station on our front porch is now a daily regular - a beautiful male Crimson Rosella. I've always wondered why the person who named this bird couldn't have called it the Blue & Crimson Rosella, because the blue feathers are as brilliant as the red ones. The photos are a bit dark because they were taken through a tinted window, as well as being just on dusk. I think he suspected I was there because he kept on looking at the window, even though it is one of those tints that is a mirror finish on the outside so nobody can see in. Birds are not stupid!
