For the last week or so we have been living through a heatwave here in Victoria and today I realized that we humans weren’t the only ones wishing for it to cool down.
This afternoon the Man noticed a miserable looking King Parrot on the back verandah and thought it looked like it could do with a drink. He found a glass bowl, filled it with water, and I put it out on the ground near where the parrots like to feed.
Shortly after, I took this photo through the glass door.
A crowd of Rainbow Lorikeets were in a watery heaven, squabbling for position in the small bowl and splashing water everywhere.
It wasn’t long before I had to go out and re-fill it, and when I did in the trees above were the now-cooler Lorries, happily grooming the water out of their bedraggled feathers. 😀
