Rainbow Lorikeets are very common in this area and in my backyard. I planted grevillias hoping to encourage the birds into my yard and the lorikeets are usually there. They are noisy and colourful birds and I enjoy watching them interacting with each other. Early in the morning large flocks fly overhead with their noisy cries. Late in the evening I can hear their sleepy murmurs as they settle down to roost in the pine trees next door. I enjoy following them around with the camera but they seldom sit in a good pose for pictures. More often they are hanging upside down or walking around and under the foliage.
