What can you spy up in the tree?
Look very carefully and you will see a Rainbow Lorikeet. See the colour there on the branches on the right? That is one from a flock that greet us in the mornings with their Spring Calls. Throughout the day there is always a pair to be found in the Eucalyptus tree in the garden, this species of gum, is called an Argyle Apple.
The lorikeets are definately attracted to the bottle brush tree sitting close to the big gum in the front garden. The bottle brush being smaller does not offer the protection like the big gum and these beautiful birds appreciate the safety of a high vantage point.
The two photos of the birds are taken as they devoured apples from my apple tree.
