I had no birds for my posts this week so phoned up my friends Sarah and Graham. Of course I was invited to morning tea - good conversation and good company - and birds to photograph afterwards!
Their yard has lots of big old gum trees which the birds love. This morning there were numbers of parrots all inspecting possible nesting holes. All these big trees seem to have numbers of holes. It's just a matter of finding the right one!
Some of the holes are a little harder to see than others.
It seemed that the Rainbow Lorikeets were investigating the possibilities of this one.
I could just imagine their deliberations!
"Get involved! You know it needs to be a joint decision!"
"Preening is hardly relevant when we are house hunting!"
"Shouldn't we get a closer look?"
"Would the inside be big enough for a family?"
