These friendly Rainbow Lorikeets never say no to a few pieces of bread.

I placed the bread on my balcony ledge and soon there were 4 fighting over it – both parents and the two kids.

Sometimes I can even feed them out my hand…as long as I have some bread in it!

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    Great shot Michael. Didn’t know they like bread.

  • Thanks John. Yes, in winter when there is less food around they don’t mind some bread (multigrain, of course!).
