cheeky visitors

P1190347.jpgRainbow lorikeets are common birds here in Australia, and they can become very bold, like a¬†pair who came right to the glass door of the place I was housesitting and peered in at me, chattering non-stop, until I relented and gave them some food… a practice I don’t normally do for wild birds, but one they were used to by the home owner and clearly expected. It did give a lovely opportunity though to snap some close photos.

Eastern Rosellas are one of the prettiest small parrots where I live and this pair was one of three that were feeding on the eucalyptus gum outside my friends home on the far north coast of NSW Australia.

This cheeky Eastern Rosella was performing for the camera, giving a lovely view of its colourful under feathers.
