A Rainbow For Your Day

These were not the best captures but about a fortnight ago, when we were starting to think about heading North again, we gate crashed my Grandparent's beach holiday at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast and I got clicking. I love the beach and have missed these holidays. Something familiar I saw were Rainbow Lorikeets hanging out in the trees on the beach front. I have never seen or heard so many in this area. Maybe they have moved to where there is more food or maybe it was timing. Back home, I have heard these birds everywhere and occasionally see them in flight but I am blowed if I can find them as conveniently as when they were feast around the corner a few months ago.

I hope these beautiful birds have brightened your day just a little, lent it a bit of a rainbow hew with the hope of a pot of gold somewhere around.


  1. Great photos of the Rainbow Lorikeets. They fly over my house most days but don't often settle down since my last grevillea died.
    Congrats on the beautiful ring and exciting news in your last post!

  2. I'm lucky enough to see these almost every day - the first time I saw one (almost 20 years ago!!) I could not believe what I was seeing - how much colour??

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
