Rainbow Lorikeets going to bed.

Luna winter

I thought some of you might enjoy this. I'm sharing it more for the sound than the visual, though you do see the odd lorikeet from time to time.

There is a tree on our back boundry (it's actually our neighbour's tree, but on our fenceline) that the local wild lorikeets have deemed the perfect night spot.
Every evening the tree thrums with birds as they squabble over the best perch for the night, and every morning I get to wake to the sound of them rising. I love it, and feel very privileged to live where I do.

I'm glad you enjoy it. When the birds get going in the tree outside my window I want to kill them. You must be very patient.

when we drive down to mother in law's there is a stretch of trees along the river where all the lorikeets settle at dusk and we actually can't hear ourselves talking in the car as we drive past. they are SO LOUD!

when i was growing up i had an umbrella tree outside my window, and they would get drunk on the fruit and squabble and fly to settle on the branches and miss... hilarious.

wow... you enjoy being woken up by them? lol what time do they wake up? I think that if they arose any eariler than 9am, I would have serious problems lol

I am glad that you like them though...

Good lord, that wakes you up every morning?? Seriously, I'd be investing in a shotgun by the second morning... ;^P
