    Default Flying Rainbow

    This is a Rainbow Lorikeet, a native to our area that regularly visits neighbourhood trees in the hundreds. We often get several in our yard each morning.




    I've shown this one before but figured I'd add it here too

    I haven't saturated those either ... they really are that bright. Noisy buggers when there's a few of them around though.

    I like the red ring around the eye too.

    These birds have a serious attitude too. Cheeky. They are king of where they are if they can be. I've seen them chase away the much larger Sulphur Crested Cockatoos.

    MA - those birds don't hold a candle to the beauty of our brown sparrows.

    Wow...that really is something...beautiful colours! We don't get anything like that out here - unless they escaped their home!
    All I've seen lately are chickadees, starlings and the occasional Canada goose or two! The summer birds are still gone for at least another month out here.:(

    Thank you all

    We have loads of crows here too unfortunately Michael

    Funny also TT ... yes ... the beauty of a brown house sparrow is unmatched.
    Ever notice how in nature it's the males that are the most beautiful?

    I guess humans don't rate as 'nature' :(

    on a more serious note, how nice it is to be able to look out your kitchen window at such beauty!!! and the other wild life you have shared! here, it is your basic squirrel and cottontail rabbits. on occasion, you may spy a rodent of one variety or another, but nothing like the awesome critters you have.. and, thanks so much for photographing them for us to see!
