Saturday 31 March 2012: Riff Raff
My mother feeds a large contingent of birds in her neighbourhood including some very tame kookaburras, brush turkeys, noisy miners, wattle birds, ravens, currawongs and magpies. I am sure her house is known as Bee's cafe. There was a large gang of rowdy rainbow lorikeets hanging around this morning. In gangs, they always behave like drunken patrons with raucous calls and arguments breaking out. At least they don't break the furniture.
The one of the left was feeling a little smoochy and gently approached the one on the right for a preen only to be told off in no uncertain terms. This is mid screech.
