Hi again,
Earlier I reported on the hundreds of Muskies and Rainbows and Purple-crowns and New Hollands feeding in my River Red Gum. We just had a night of light rain here and this morning there seemed to be more than ever out there, and it was still raining when I ventured forth. Checking out the Lorries and H/Es I noticed a difference in behaviour in that not only were they feeding on the blossoms, but lots of them were out in full view on dead sticks and branches fluttering like mad in the rain, presumably bathing ( delousing ?). There were evidently very excited and happy.
Has anyone tried eating a pie whilst delousing in the shower ? Might be fun.
