there is a story to this picture. Kiwi and Marissa are partners in crime it seems. Kiwi was sitting on the couch preening . Marissa crawled over to the table to grab something everytime Marissa is into something Kiwi has to be right there watching her. they get into such mischief together.
look at my beauty with nectar beak and nectar..neck. she's not quite mastered eating it in powder form without it getting everywhere.
they play this game. Kiwi will screech at Marissa and hop around wildly until Marissa gets down and crawls after her . they will seriously spend close to half an hour chasing eachother.
strike a pose.. aka Marissa chase me NOW!!!
i know i'm pretty
I taught her to be gentle to the bird and only use one finger.
I have some videos as well they are on my youtube I'll put a link to my list of videos.
I love watching lorikeets at play. Where I am they come down regularly for food, this day last Summer I was watching this lorikeet & magpie - they were playing chasey around the gum tree! It was so cute! One would 'tag' the other who would then lay on it's back then roll over and start chasing the other! They did it for nearly 5 minutes! Laughed hard that day.
