SQUARE TOPS – ON TOP OF THE Head – Lorikeet

Yesterday for Square Tops, I gave you Tweety on top of Frank’s head and today I present you with Lorikeets on top of my head and shoulder. These photos were taken 12 years ago on a visit to Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, Florida. The lorikeets will become your BFFs when you purchase the nectar and enter the large aviary. I think we purchased 3 or 4 cup fulls. I was having too much fun!

I should have known way back then that I was destined to be a birder. It took watching “The Big Year” about 7 or 8 years ago to know what I was meant to do with my free time. Once I saw that movie, I knew I’d become a crazy bird lady! Thank goodness I’m married to a man that loves birds as much as I do. BTW: The movie lives on our DVR.

    I love lorikeets, and all others from the parrot family, but if they made you a crazy bird lady you are easy. I go out an look at the warbler migration and hang up five feeders but that’s the extent for me. I do write comedy about birds if your interested but I don’t think that counts. I hop you find all the birds you have ever desired. Stay well and laugh a lot

      We went birding in the cemetery today while saying hello to my hubby’s parents. The cemetery is within walking distance from the house. There was another birder there. 😂 new material?

        I didn’t know the geese made it that far south. Do they still migrate?

        Yeah and then they stay. And then have more. They are out of control.

    Those are some friendly birds! So fun to have them perch on you. We had the same experience when we were at the Kansas City Zoo a couple of years ago. 🙂
