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.
