One of the joys of travel is experiencing new and unexpected delight.
For example, birds that would be considered “exotic” (and only found in zoos in Canada) are commonplace in Australia.
This rainbow lorikeet is one of many that regularly come to the trees and veranda railings asking to be fed. In fact, there is a pair that have become so comfortable with me that they follow me around everywhere I go, landing right beside me, chirring and chatting.
Just one of my many feathered friends!
