This, my latest work tells a true story of valiant bravery…….
When the two Lorakeets (now called “Pam and Arthur Squeek-fart”) took up residence in the palm tree outside our sun-porch, I was going to open the window and give them a stern talking to about building a nest in a dangerous tree. I changed my mind though after watching them erecting an absolute fortress made from soft bits of vegetation glued together with Bird-Spit!
We have since witnessed several storms and some vicious attacks by Minah birds and Seagulls – but nothing will shift this most wonderful couple!
After a storm, they simply preen each other back to beauty and stand united, with pride and decorum against the nasty forces of Nature!
