I love lorikeets and rosellas. My nan and pa have so many species of parrots up at their farm as they are right near national park and have 300 odd acres of pristine untouched bush.

We had a pair of lorikeets trying to build a nest in the hollow of our cut-down gum but the stupid myna birds chased them off.

How long have you been feeding them as they look pretty tame?

I think they're pretty familiar with people in the neighbourhood. I only feed them once eery half a year when I come home. They always stop by to see if someone's there to feed them. one is shyer than the other.

They're beautiful birds. I wish we had those flying around here but we only see them in pet stores.

In the last house we lived in, our neighbour had fed these birds twice a day for around 10 years. So there was about 300 of them all over the yard and fence 6 am and 6pm (along with cockatoos, galahs, crows, magpies, the inevitable mynahs and pigeons, etc etc) . Which was nice because they are pretty, but boy are they --noisy-- little birds! We got used to shouting over the din after a while, but it made phone calls interesting. I once told an annoying telephone canvasser that I was sorry, but i had to go because my house was currently being attacked by birds, just like in the movie, aahhhh! And then hung up mid-sentence.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Parrots are my passion, you have some beautiful birds that visit you....you're so lucky! I'd be lucky if even a pigeon came to call at my bird feeder.
Though we have many tame chickadees, cardinals, goldfinches, purple finches, house finches, and wrens that pay visits.
Many more birds are here, though.
I especially love Red Winged Blackbirds.

Pretty sure the OP is in Australia still where these birds are quite common.
