Lorikeets outslurp daintier Corellas


Flashy and messy, pair of Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) climb into slurpy mango at the Tyto carpark.


How messy? Very!



More delicate feeders, band of five Little Corella (Cacatua sanguinea) beside highway about 300 metres from the wetlands this morning.


Almost certainly same five birds - species rare to the area -  that fooled me into misidentification as Long-billeds or hybrids when spotted along road to Abergowrie three or four months back.
