Our First Houseguests!

There we were...  just minding our own business...  when they just walked on in.

Yep.  We fed them.  I was told by a friend that you can encourage them to keep coming back by pouring honey on bread and feeding it to them.  Then one day we were in Milsons Point and someone in the area had posted a notice telling everyone that several lorikeets were found not breathing due to ingesting bread.  I guess it's not good for them.  Instead, it was suggested that you should give them watered down honey.  Thus, the honey in one of our only bowls.

If you care to learn more about lorikeets in Sydney, feel free to click on the link below.  I don't have any affiliation with the site, but I like the information they give about the birds.

It was nice to watch them eat the honey.  Their tongues move very quickly and they make these cute noises. They were trying to get some of their friends to come over, but we had to leave.  Too bad they didn't come sooner.

I can't wait for them to come back!
