The Dawn Chorus. by leelastarsky The Dawn Chorus. by leelastarsky
I am extremely privileged to live in an area where I see this every day. Flocks of Rainbow Lorikeets, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Corellas, and Galahs fly overhead at dawn, and again in the evening as they head home to roost.

Some people would complain about the noise, but I ADORE them!

Inspired by Sketchfest and 6am outside my window!

Acrylic on canvas. 20"x30"

And you see this every day? Oh, lucky you! Must be an amazing sight. We have some Rainbow Loriketts, my dad used to breed them.

I still find it funny a Brittish exchange student didn't even know they wee parrots until I told her :XD: She didn't believe me.
