These pictures were taken last week, when it was clear - at least to these Rainbow Lorikeets (Trichoglossus moluccanus) - that spring was in the air. This pair of birds were investigating a hollow log, probably as a nesting site. I went back the next day, and unfortunately, the log was free from lorikeets.
I plan to go back soon, and have a look for this couple!

How exciting to see such beauties in nature!ReplyDelete
They do seem to be having a discussion about where to live!
Stunning colors. Our Painted Bunting has nearly the same palate, but arranged much differently than the lorikeets.ReplyDelete
I enjoy to see once again these lorikeet. They give me a smile.ReplyDelete
Cheers and have a a nice day in Autralia
I can never get enough of these birds. When I first saw them in Australia I just couldn't get over their colourful plumage. Perfectly named.ReplyDelete
They do appear to be discussing the possibilities of that hole. Love the name, Lorikeets.ReplyDelete
What an amazing mix of colors on those birds. Related to parakeets?ReplyDelete
They have got to be the most colorful birds on the planet, Stewart!!!...jpReplyDelete
Hello Stewart, your captures of the Lorrikeets are wonderful, and what a delightful range of colour they have. They are just stunning birds.ReplyDelete
As usual I tried to add my post. Blue Tits, is the title, but couldn't do it. Please would you add my link for me. I'm so sorry, but mine was refused.
So pretty! I wonder what they are saying.ReplyDelete
Just when you think nature can't be more beautiful, you see a Rainbow Lorikeet! Terrific images, Stewart.ReplyDelete
Hope you're coping okay.
