A small group of 2 adult and three young Rainbow lorikeets drop by our front yard every day recently assuming the seed stick is eternal. They may take anywhere between a week and 2 days to demolish it. If they discover no stick is waiting a dreadful din begins with lots of screeching and screaming with the young ones doing antics on branches  a bit like acrobats on the high wire  until a new stick appears. Then they settle into a quiet chortling amongst themselves even nodding off to sleep at times. Can you spot the 3 young ones in this last image?

This is my contribution to the one a week week Photo Challenge  and the challenge this week is SEED . For this years challenge planned by Cathy and Sandra visit Cathy’s blog at  https://nanacathydotcom.wordpress.com/one-a-week-photo-challenge-2017/

    1. Twenty years ago they were not near Melbourne. Climate change has brought them here and they get on well in suburbia.The feed sticks are great photo props.

    1. They are, this is the first Summer I put out seed sticks to attract them and it didn’t take long to get them in. Usually I had to drive to the beach parks to photograph them, now I walk out the front door.
