It was quite amazing to find how game and tame these wild Rainbow Lorikeets were. While there were other birds such as Rosellas and Kookaburras around they weren’t quite as willing to sit on our hands like these cheeky birds.

These were taken at Broulee on the South Coast of NSW, Australia about 4 hours drive south of Sydney just past Batemans Bay before Moruya.

Note: feeding wildlife is generally frowned upon in Australia and can be dangerous. We were staying in a wildlife sanctuary nature reserve and the seed was supplied.
