feather fest

Posted on

P1100915This very cute pair of Rainbow Lorikeets decided it was fun to submerge themselves in the bird bath. While birds like to bathe it is usually a quick foray into shallow water before jumping out again and checking out the terrain for possible threats. This pair were quite at ease and rolled around keeping only their heads above water as if pretending to be submarines. Rainbow Lorikeets are prolific in certain parts of Australia and like to hang out in large groups. Their crowd can make an incredible amount of noise as they perch atop native trees stripping them of flowers and seeds, but the high pitch screeching is so full of goodwill and zest for life that you can’t help but enjoy it.
