You managed to get a lovely natural photo, Andrew, good on you.   This last year the lorikeets have come to visit my native mulberry tree, it has little white edible berries and they fight the other birds off to get as many as they can.  They are there now as I type, it is so nice to hear them around.

The lorikeets have been slow to come back to our malaleucas & callistemons thus far this year. I guess because they demand full flowering. Once the trees are occupied, never alone, their sociability with one another is amazing.

A bird, here in Bird Central, we often tend to take them  for granted -- getting excited more at the rarer species like Cuckoo Pheasant, Black Cockatoos, Spangled Drongoes. But when the lorikeets are missing from the air ways there is an emptiness in the chorus.

But that's one helluva photo Andy. lounge room wall quality.

Beautiful photo Andy. The road to Browns Plains is lined with these Golden Pendas, Xanthostemon chrysanthus, also known as Expo Gold. We drove through there today and what a picture it is and the Birdlife must be in their glory.

They love them Elaine.

Superb. The bird and the pic ;-) I did not know that Golden Pendas attracted birds.
