And your bird can sing...

Next door's apple tree is full of fruit. It's that time of year. I'm not sure if the apples are sweet and tasty, or hard, bitter items - like some people I've met over the years. Anyhow, the brightly coloured, chatterbox Rainbow Lorikeets have discovered the apples, and are presently spending an unhealthy amount of time in the tree, gorging themselves. They were the same at our last house - not interested in the stone fruit (well, apart from the plums) - just the apples. Life is good in Adelaide right now if you are an apple-eating parrot, I guess.

I just wish that they would take 20 bites out of one apple, instead of one bite out of 20 apples...

No manners!
