Rainbow Lorikeet


A bird appeared in a very odd place in our garden. It was hiding in a very low bush - less than knee height. I wondered if it was injured but didn't really know what to do.

I got it some food and water, and while initially it was distressed when I tried to place the dish near it, it became used to me and allowed me to leave the seed and water near it. 

It stayed there for a few hours, but when I returned late afternoon, it had gone. 

So I'm hoping it's recovered and joined it's flock....
