If you can be bothered, a really special treat for Lorikeets? Find an ants nest, dig around and grab a teaspoon full of ant larvae - watch your lorikeet go berserk over them. My girl was over 2 years old the first time I gave them to her. When she saw them her eyes pinned, she gave an overly sounding squeal and happily ate every last one. I only gave them to her about once a month - mainly because the ants bit me when I nest raided!
