Lorikeet trifecta

On the same vacant urban block in my suburb I found 3 species of Lorikeet one morning this week.

The Scaly-breasted I've never seen before and the urban population is thought to have grown from escaped aviary birds. The 'natives' are hundreds of miles to the north.

That's quite a silver lining to the lock-down.

Thanks guys.
In the open these birds stick out like sore thumbs but in the foliage ...
