Yesterday we drove past the Lindenow South Primary School about 10.30 am. Two long-tailed Lorikeets flew towards us - largely bright green but too large and stout for Musks, and no red head-markings. Some yellow trimming on body as they turned parallel to the car. About Rainbow 'Keet size.
  Definitely Scaly-breasted Lorikeets (I've seen plenty in Brisbane).
What are they doing in Gippsland in mainly cleared farming country with
some big Red Gums near the school.
Aviary escapees?
