early spring

 

Rainbow Lorikeetsa hollow tree trunk

inspection completed

nesting to begin

Spring is arriving in South eastern Australia  and birds of all varieties are responding to their natural instincts, urgings and behaviours. These Rainbow Lorikeets at Rickets Point have completed their inspection of a hollowed Coastal Banksia and seem fairly confident it will be suitable. Now they will have to defend this nesting site against other Lorikeets, Indian Mynahs, micro bats and possums over the coming weeks.
