Title: stand-off
Post by: Darryl on March 29, 2018, 12:51:53 pm
I took this photo today. Our guinea fowl were wandering about the yard and I threw out a piece of bread. Before they could grab it one lonely brave lorikeet zoomed in on it and held off the entire flock while he devoured the bread. It was a funny sight - all those guinea fowl held at bay by one pugnacious rainbow lorikeet. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge:

It might be that the guinea fowl are watching the adorable lorikeet amused.  --- tk

They are curious birds, but no, they really wanted that piece of bread.
Here's another picture. You can see from blurred movement of the guinea on the right that the lorikeet bullied him away. I have seen guinea fowl savagely attack a deadly snake, but this little lorikeet called their bluff.

I was curious about what the birds looked like.

Thanks, Darryl.  That Lorikeet must be brave with that gang of guineas bearing down.

They are all fowl.
