|A husband-and-wife team of beautiful multi-coloured Rainbow Lorikeets arrive at exactly 5.15 am every morning, just outside my bedroom window.
They speak with one other in the same order and voice, then the male parrot flies to a native Bottlebrush tree in full bloom, and starts to drink some nectar from a dew-drenched scarlet flower.
He then makes a sound, which signals his mate. She answers, flies to join him, they cavort for about 20 minutes, then fly away.
