@andrewmelder You’re in Perth aren’t you?
That’s a Rainbow Lorikeet, I am lucky enough to have a couple of trees in my yard that produce a fruit they like, so I get lots of them here in Brisbane. Apparently Perth has it’s own population of them now, but it’s introduced. Are they common in Perth?
I have never been that close to one, usually they stay high in trees, and are very fast moving.
They are also very noisy. There is a supermarket near me that has a massive tree in the car park. They like to roost in that tree overnight, and there would easily be a thousand of them all calling at once. If you park near the tree at dusk the sound is deafening. Literally put your finders in your ears deafening.
