Rainbow Lorikeets

We went out and I did get so waterbirds while out but on the way home and almost home I seen these on the power line and I asked the wife to stop.
But she was ready to stop so it makes it easy when she knows my habits with birds.
All shots were taken with the Canon SX70 in manual mode but auto focus as I have not worked that part out to work it right. It did make it hard to focus on the with the green leafs of the Palms behind them.

No these are called Rainbow Lorikeet and I have never heard of them being call Rainbox.
So I am sorry but you are wrong on this one.

LOL Arthur.... your thread was initially titled "Rainbox Lorikeets (so easily done - we've all been there), hence Andy's comment.

It has since been changed to the correct spelling by Admin. Presumably that's OK with you?
