Up Close and Personal

I now have a flock of parrots in the backyard. I counted 11 of them this morning. There's a pair of them that let me get to about 5 feet away --they are the original pair, BTW. Yes, I can tell a difference a few of them.

Anyways, here's a pic:


ain't I purdy?

They're gorgeous. Why is it they fancy your backyard?

KG: These ones (Rainbow Lorikeets) sell on the black market in the US for $6000 --I counted 12 this morning, hmmmmmm $72,000 worth of birds...

Suzer: They are suckers for sunflower seeds! There's also plenty of native trees closeby that they fancy.
