The Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) is a remarkably colourful bird that I see most days. They can often be seen in our street trees or flying over my house.
On a recent walk around a local lake I found a large group of these birds - maybe about 40 - feeding very low down on a series of gum trees. Many of the birds seemed to be pecking at the bark of the trees. There was no evidence that the birds were collecting artificial food (like bird seed), and I was unable to work out what they were doing!
Such are the mysteries of the birding life.
I have some time away from work over the next few weeks, so I hope to be able to catch up on blog visits and many other tasks.
