The rainbow lorikeets are back and "harvesting" my apples for me. Next weekend is going to have to be the big cider-making day or I'm going to lose the race. They've started at the top of the tree, I'm going to come in from the bottom and we'll meet somewhere in the middle.



@mike do they do the same thing as Cockatoos and take one bite, chuck it, next apple & repeat?

@GwenfarsGarden nah they're actually pretty good about finishing what they start, but there are a lot of them about and they can make a pretty serious dent in a crop quite fast.

Given I'm planning to pulp and juice most of the fruit though, a few parrot bites aren't actually a big deal.

@mike that's cool. I just remember how frustrating Cockies can be!

I do love Rainbow Lorikeets. They can be quite friendly

@GwenfarsGarden yeah I love them, they're great. I'm happy to share the crop with them in general, I just want to be sure I actually get some!
