Crimson and purple

It’s been a delight to see Purple-crowned Lorikeets in the garden over recent days. Flowering Red Ironbarks and a Lemon-scented Gum have attracted them along with their larger ‘cousins’, Musk Lorikeets.

Purple-crowned Lorikeets are much less common locally than either Musk or Little Lorikeets and they seem to have a special liking for both Lemon-scented and Spotted Gum, neither of which are locally indigenous, but are often planted in parks and gardens.
