Lorikeet Pair

Yesterday afternoon there was a huge racket out the front of our place that signalled the arrival of a small flock of Rainbow Lorikeets (Trichoglossus moluccanus). I grabbed my camera and headed out there expecting them to be somewhere down the street, but they were actually in the palm trees planted just inside our front fence. It was really fun to see them squawking at each other and fighting over the fronds of palm flower. Most left soon after, but this pair hung out for quite a while grooming each other.
