I have been noticing a different parrot call recently in my backyard area, one that I am familiar with. Yes, it is the Rainbow Lorikeet !

I have now seen it on numerous occasions. There is only one though, which is strange. It seems to like sitting in wattle varieties and the large gum trees in the house behind me. It doesn't really seem to have escaped from captivity, though I would not really know how to tell.

I have taken a photo of it (though it's not the best, you can still see it) and here is the link :

Zoom in maybe once or twice if need be.

Has anybody else seen any Rainbow Lorikeet's in Canberra this recently this year ?
