You know I think they are gorgeous Daisy.
You would have loved to be with me yesterday. Went to a big bird sale yesterday. There were heaps of Lorikeets there. Including about 6 Black Lory's. Lot's of mutations, especially of the Rainbow (Swainson's) and Scaley Breasted Lorikeets. There were Lutino's, Pieds, Blue Fronted Rainbow, Dark Factor Blue Fronted Rainbow's, Black Capped and so many more. Also saw my first Parrotlets in the flesh. They are fairly new to the country. Sweet little things. Was not game to ask how much as there was no price on display, just POA. When I see that I know I definitely cannot afford them.
I would say there was more than 4,000 birds for sale. And heaps of trade stalls. You would also have loved the 2 hand raised Barn Owls that my friend Ravi had there on display. Brother and Sister about 4 months old. They were lovely. He is a Zooligist and does free flight displays.
