These two lovelies :P

Hey guys, these two scaly breasted lorikeets are on of the main reasons I want to start getting into birds. I don't know if they are tame or wild? But each and everyday after school they visit my girlfriends house. We feed them apples and if we don't then a little bit of bread (I know its bad for them). They will without hesitation fly and land on you even if you don't have food. I even had one step up! If Scaly lorikeets weren't so loud and hard for a beginner etc. I would have definitely bought one as my first bird

That's really cool! Do you live in an area where Lori's are native?

I know! We usually get a lot of rainbow lorikeets around here, but the scaly's are one of the first two I have seen around my area. They are a pair because if one leaves so does the other and they always stay together. I can even feed the flock of rainbow lorikeets that come as well but they bully the scaly lorries unfortunately.

at it again! these lorries are fearless. it can be a bad thing though because not all people are as kind as i am and they can get hurt or captured.

Hopefully no one takes advantage of their trusting nature and cages them or hurts them. They are so gorgeous!

You are so right! I hope that they are so trusting because people have been nice to them so far. How very lucky you are to be trusted so much by wild birds. They are beautiful birds.

I know they are very gorgeous birds and I am starting to teach them tricks :P I can get about 3/12 birds to step up on command now haha. My worry is that yesterday only one of the scaly's showed up for a feed hopefully today I see them both.

Hi Nick,
I'm so jealous of the birds living in your natural enviroment.
It's awesome how trusting the lorikeets are.
I like parrots very much, in Germany there is at least one species, the IRNs.



This one was eating in my garden last winter.

Haha, yeah people who live in Australia truly have it good. Nature at the door step and the beach/country out the front. My Mum said I don't need a bird because I already have 12 of them that visit me every day :P haha. But I would still like to have one for myself

Thanks guys, maybe I can record them feeding and post a link to youtube?

I had a gorgeous King Parrot visit me this morning for the feed but it flew away before I could feed it.

Awesome photos Nick! I'm so jealous. I'd love to visit Australia to see the native parrots. Closest I've been has been either the Indian ringnecks in Amsterdam or blue and gold macaws in Orlando, Florida. It's such an awesome sight to see a parrot flying free! Keep the photos coming
