Rainbow Lorikeet

On Sunday Jo and I were walking near our home and had crossed the channel, heading toward that patch of remnant bush opposite Toorak Winery, when she looked up and scanned the trees. 

Jo pointed out the Rainbow Lorikeets eating among the blooms and observed they're an unlikely sight in Leeton. 

Their grating chatter is an irritatingly distinctive sound and one she knows from holidays at the coast. 

We speculated they might have escaped from captivity.
