G'day all

Rainbow Lorikeets seem to have spread to Hamilton now.  Although quite
common in the Grampians I have not seen them in urban Hamilton until this
year when they arrived in large numbers and in March and are still around. 
I've lived in Hamilton since 1982 by the way.

Apart from Galahs, Long-billed Corellas and Sulphur-crested Cockatoos,
parrots are infrequent in town with only the smaller Lorikeets making
regular appearances.  So the Rainbows will be a welcome addition to the
community if they decide to stay.
