Has anyone else had any Rainbow Lorikeets eating their apricot tree 
LEAVES.....not the fruit but the leaves?  What is in it for them, does anyone 
know?  Does ir harm the tree long-term?  One friend says her apricot tree died 
by being continually and totally stripped of leaves by these otherwise charming 
but too-vocal birds.
Thanks for any info.
