Yesterday I walked north on the Dreaming Track, instead of south. Where the track leads through bushland climbing up to the Meringo headland I watched Rainbow Lorikeets screeching through the banksias, going my way. The noise of their calling increased, until I reached the headland and saw them sitting on two electrical wires. A flurry of birds came and went, others clustered along the guttering of a house, and climbed about the verandah posts.
I took some photos and walked on, all the way to the lagoon and back, when to my surprise the birds had gone, yet I could still hear them. Suddenly I realised they were at a feeder! When I walked past the tall fence, I could see them perfectly. They must know the timetable well, since they had crowded and jostled on the wires and the house front to be in the best position when their dinner was provided.
