very cautious, but while I keep my distance, and they both keep their eyes upon me, all is good.
With such a hot start to spring, spring rushed into summer all so quickly, and the crepe myrtle flowering period has all but been and gone, already. As Autumn moves along to Winter generally, is when I expect to see the Rosellas come in to feed on those spent flowerheads. By then, they have gone brown and a little crispy even.
Maybe food has been a little light-on throughout summer and this pair have ventured in to make an early start. They've got it good for some time now since there are nine of these shrubs for them to feed on.
