After the first had checked every thing was fine, the second landed, then checked the nest.

Lorakeets are SO cute! Nothing like having your choice of subjects, scenery and birds. Thanks for posting them.

Rodney-

What a great series! Sometimes we really should go back once again to re-visit our photo-sites.

Fine photos of these beautiful birds, Rodney.
I think colour isn't fairly distributed around the world. But please keep posting what we never get to see here, and keep your couch ready for when I can make it there (no hurry, count on ten or so years).
