Taken at 10am this morning - 1 1/2 hours ago - YEAH!!!They finally found it!

We had a total of 73mm - 3" of rain - yesterday & last night!!! It was FANTASTIC:)) For the previous 5 months we'd only had very short showers that didn't help the gardens and lawns - and now everything has had a good soaking.

I know I'm VERY lucky that they visit flkatz:))))) They are here every day - and I never get sick of seeing them:)))) Next door started feeding them about 2 years ago - so they are used to us, and we can get quite close to them - about 3-4 metres!!!Thanks!!!

flkatz

You really are lucky to see them nearly everyday, and I think "they've adopted yall." :))))

If you build it, they will come... :-)

Seems that is true!

You are going to have a great time photographing your new guests and we will all enjoy them along with you. Thanks, Rob.

Thank you Rob for this wonderful photo and great news. Have a beautiful afternoon ☺☻ ♥hugs

Lucky you, Rob, for having these birds almost literally at your fingertips. And you did your happy rain dance and it paid off!

robryan

Thanks Shirley - they were so used to going next door I think!! There's plenty of birds to go around, so I'm really pleased they arrived:)))) I'm pleased you got some rain - but I bet you'd like lots more - it was really patchy!

Thanks flkatz - they never fail to amuse me and we're lucky to see them practically every day:)))

flkatz

These birds are beautiful Rob! I love your feeder and am so glad they found it. Looks like it fits them perfectly...thanks for your patience and their feeder. :)))

Good to see they finally found your feeder, Rob, I knew it was only a matter of time, and nice to know you got some good rain at last, we ended up with 15mm after a shower over night.

robryan

LOL!! Thanks Beekay - I counted 9 there just a while ago:)))

Beekay

Congratulations!!! They look like they are claiming ownership of the feeder LOL.

robryan

Thanks Nev. Maybe Marge can aim & zoom towards the gum tree:)))) That would be a real treat!!

Thanks Marian - they don't come much more colourful than the Lorikeets! They've been visiting next door's feeder for a couple of years, so we decided to put up our own feeder! and....I never tire of seeing them :)))) They visit every day.

Marian_Black

Love these birds Rob...I miss the colours of the birds in Australia...now they have found the new feeder you will see them very often. Lucky you.

ulangariver

Rob, I'm pleased the Lorikeets are now visiting you. Like yourself, we never tire of them either. We have a flowering Eucalypt tree about 50 metres from our home, and we can hear the constant chatter of these birds all day long. It is something we never weary of.

robryan

Thanks Floyd - yes, the rain was terrific...and I'm so pleased the birds have found us!!!!

Gladstone

Thank Goodness for the rain. Those bird are beautiful.
Thank you Rob for sharing.

robryan

Thanks Trudy - the rain was very welcome - but unfortunately some areas didn't do so well! The birds will benefit in the long-run too!!

Thanks Ami - we ended up with a really decent amount and everything got a good soaking!! Happy gardens equals happy birds:))))

laurajane

You did it! Fantastic!

TrudyTai

Robyn, I love your birds! That is so special -- thanks for sharing them with us.

loveydear

I've been hoping you'd get rain soon, so I'm happy to hear that you got some. Let's hope there's more in the next few months! Great looking pic of your feathered visitors!

TrudyTai

We complain about all the rain in Seattle, but when it doesn't come, we REALLY miss it, too. Here's hoping some of Brisbane's rain will fall on you, Janet.

robryan

Thanks Janet - here's hoping they'll tell their friends:)))
The rain really was terrific - last night we got heavier showers that soaked under the tree canopies so everything got a good drenching!!! I'm sorry to hear you missed out - Shirley only got 7mm too!! As usual - it was very patchy:((

jan42ful

Oh Rob, I'm so pleased you got the Lorikeets at last and I am SO envious of your rain. We got about 10 mls. SO disappointing. Not even half an inch. The garden loved it, but I doubt it helped the farmers much at all. I know some areas received a lot more, which also needed it very badly.
Well done for your pic! Hugs, Janet

robryan

Hi jacki2 - I live in Brisbane, Australia - which is about half way up the east coast of the country. The Lorikeets are native to Australia - and we see them every day in the garden, and still don't get sick of the sight of them :)))) Thanks!!!

these birds are gorgeous. would you mind sharing what area you are in? we have some colorful birds in washington state but nothing like these.

robryan

Yes Joanne - next door has been feeding them for a few years!! We decided to build a feeder - as there are about 30 to 40 Lorikeets, Crested Pigeons, Galahs, Crows, Kookaburras & Noisy Miners all crowding their feeder. It's been very dry here for months & feed has been scarce, so they have really appreciated the extra feed. We can get to within 2-3 metres from the birds as they are used to us!!
Yesterday we had 75mm - 3" - of rain, the first decent fall in about 5 months, so everyone is REALLY happy:))) Thanks!!

GrandmaJoJo

And these beauties are just your local wild birds and not something that has escaped from a exotic pet store?? They are so colourful. I will have to check out YouTube and see if there is recordings of their bird sounds. Thanks, Robyn.
