Avian Entertainment

These Rainbow Lorikeets  were everywhere in Australia, but we had a very special rainy afternoon where about 50 of them visited us for sunflower seed treats, creating a deafening racket with their calls and squawks. I could watch them all day, and even fed them out of my hand (until about 6 were all standing on my forearm and I couldn't handle their sharp claws any longer!).

Their feathers were so intense and beautiful! These two were having quite the grooming session, taking turns nibbling each other.

I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a Happy Easter and couldn't do so without a picture!
