Recommended Posts

Saw this on reddit, and it reminded me of a certain scruffy that we have here...

My Lorikeet is called Sparky. As it turns out, it is also a very common name for Lorikeets!

 

Here he is :)

A friend has a ring neck parrot called Baby Cletus.

 

Don't think I could handle a bird as a pet, dirty shitting machines, trippy little personalities tho.

I dunno why not ask the Lorikeet how many other scruffys he knows?

Oh I just love Lorikeets, I really do!

 

They have such big personalities; very cheeky. We had a tree above our unit in Coogee and they would congregate in the evenings, I really miss the sound of their cheep-schatter-squawk.

This guy and his mate are the only two we got at my parent's place on the edge of the bush...because they'd chase off any other lorikeets in the area.

 

Had no idea they could be so territorial, as we'd get flocks of them when we lived in Epping.
