G'day Betty,

I was out today in Hastings, doing some puta work for
a good friend and when we took a morning break in his
backyard, drinking coffee only, we looked up at his
fruit trees to see Rainbow Lorikeet ... 2 Musk
and one with a near white head? I checked with my
friend as to the contents of my coffee mug and he said
no brandy in it? noticed next door had been doing some
house painting. The underside of the eaves freshly
painted white ... so went to tempt and catch the white
headed one as it started to rain? he flew off for a
few meters, grrr but as the rain increased noticed the
water based paint slowly coming away.

If I ever have to look after one of them from now on
I'll call them leonardo's okay? seems right to me!

Still trying to work out how the RL did it? no marks
on the underside of the freshly painted area? he must
have wanted to wear a white cap eh? :-]
