Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus)
It would not be Christmas without the Rainbow Lorikeets gathering under the Mango Trees to feed on the fallen fruit dropped by the Flying Foxes. It is interesting to watch the antics of these birds as they stagger about, getting drunk on the fermenting fruit. Once we watched a Crow dragging a Rainbow by the tail so it could have a feed of a Mango too.
Have been trying to get photos of them at the Mango's but it is a bit wet at the moment. We are having very good rain and the place is green again. Have to dig out the mower after many months of not needing it.
