Last week I saw a peculiar thing, in the middle of a patch of open ground on Red Hill I saw a dead rainbow lorikeet.
The bird was seemingly completely uninjured, it didn’t look like it had been attacked by a Peregrine or a Sparrowhawk. It was just lying on its back, wings half open, feet clenched and eyes shut. Reminding me rather comically of an eagle on a German flag or whatever. As it was in the middle of an open area it can’t have accidentally collided with anything. I thought it was rather peculiar because it seemed to have just dropped out of the sky apparently.
