Breaking the monopoly …

The bird baths in the front yard are being monopolised by Rainbow Lorikeets and Galahs at the minute … I’m wondering whether I might even need to drain them for a while to encourage the lorikeets in particular to move on …

  1. As beautiful as they are, I would certainly be trying to discourage the Rainbow Lorikeets from the birdbaths Geoff. I think it would be the only way you’ll be able to get the smaller birds to return. Great images all the same.

  2. Hello Geoff,

    I’m wondering if you, or one of your contacts, might be able to identify this large spider we found in our Harcourt North garden today. Including its legs it would be about 6mm long, with a very big body, and lots of flies etc stored in part of its web.

    Cheers and thanks,

  3. Hi Geoff, I suggest you contrive another few birdbaths. Make some very shallow, and some larger and very deep? The Galahs and Lorikeets can’t be in two places at once? carlo
