Flying Circus.

Flying Circus.
These colourful Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus Haematodus) are native to the East coast of Australia and flock in large numbers. Here they are searching for seeds to eat in my garden. They can be quite destructive, decimating new growth on deciduous trees in Spring and Summer.

They are noisy chatterboxes as well - all together a "circus" when they are around.

Lovely shot. Unfortunately, they're now major pests in Perth and are crowding out our natives by taking their nesting spots.

Thanks. I read somewhere these birds were released by irresponsible people who freed some from an aviary in Perth twenty years ago. Originally the Lorikeet was not found in Perth or the west coast.

Squawking rainbows. Perhaps destructive, but artsy from my point of view.

Hi Janet, Thanks for the visit. I enjoy watching them very much although it is difficult to get a good picture as they scare easily and take off so fast.
