3 colorful birds now.
Purple Swamphen.
Purple-crowned Lorikeet.
Rainbow Bee-eater. This is the most amazing of the 3. It nests in burrows in dam banks, they used to nest at a neighbor's farm a mile away. In flight they are sensational because their wings are quite long and the underneath is, well.... they say rufous, to me it looked a lovely shade of apricot. Their unusual call draws your attention too. Obviously bees and dragon flies are not safe when they are around.
