CommentOne of the numerous Musk Lorikeets that visited our property in November/December 2019 during the bushfires. I've lived here 20+ years and I hadn't previously seen them at this location so I suspect the flock had been driven further afield by the fires. They weren't at all intimidated by the resident Rainbows and Scalies, and they even gave short shrift to our militant Noisy Miners. They were quite welcome to stay!
