Periodically throughout each day, the Musk Lorikeets and the Rainbow Lorikeets will visit one of the water bowls in the garden. As far as I can recall, they always do this separately. Usually one species will wait in the nearby tree until the other has finished. Yesterday however I found them drinking together, (sounds like the start of a B grade novel).
Perhaps they have found some new co-operativeness? (I wonder why Blogger has coloured that last word?)
I'd better get on with the tale, er, tail ...
One of the Musks had a yellow tail which I've not noticed before. I think it's a mature bird, it has the black and red beak. None of my books mention a yellow tail. Ah, the little oddities that can keep you fascinated in this birdwatching game.
