CommentTwo of about a dozen or so Musk Lorikeets that visited our property late last year. They stayed for 2-3 weeks then disappeared as quickly as they came. I'd never seen them here before so I suspect they had been driven further afield by the bushfires ravaging the region at that time. I chose this image as it well shows the feather detail and the distinctive colours on the head. Moreover, it shows the pair in close contact.
