THEY'RE LORIKEETS CAPTAIN, BUT NOT AS WE KNOW THEM
YOU TUBE BLURB: Over a year ago I uploaded a bird video (still up here) called 'Which Bird is This, Please? (S.E. Australia) That pair were finally identified as a lorikeet hybrid (musk/rainbow) The other day ,chancing to glance out of a window (on the Bellarine Peninsula, Australia) I happened to spot these rather exotic looking creatures (presumably again, lorikeets but a different pattern from my first pair) . I sprang into action and was lucky enough to capture this footage. (The quality is not that good I'm afraid, but not bad considering taken with hand-held, SD camcorder through a very dirty kitchen window! My question to you Australian Lorikeet experts is:- Is this again a musk/rainbow cross or is it some other combo?
The music is also all Australian : from Frank Bourke and the White Rose Orchestra (taken from one of my vinyl collection) (I just like to keep it alive!)
