Whilst on the topic of strange lorikeets, I'll never forget my visit to
Taronga Zoo's in-flight aviary, where I saw a Rainbow Lorikeet
attempting intercourse with a Wonga Pigeon. The latter didn't seem to
mind much! This was happening whilst a rat was drowning in a rockpool. A
female Satin Bowerbird watched the rat die for a good ten minutes,
almost without the bowerbird moving. It was thinking hard about
mortality perhaps.  

These incidents are true.
