These rainbow Lorikeets are now making final decisions and feeding up around our place as the nesting season begins. There were 8 of them in our back yard busily feeding and posturing . Two stayed behind and checked out an inadequate possibility in a Liquid Amber before moving on. They do return almost every day. Should we go out and buy a nesting box in the chance they may use it??
