As locals will know, storms whipped and cracked through the skies all over Melbourne last weekend. Miraculously, little damage was done to people’s houses. Sadly, we’re not sure if the same can be said for the homes of some of our feathered friends! At least one winged warrior was looking rather weary and worse for wear when Becky and Pj went on a wet walk around Westerfolds Park on Sunday afternoon. The little lorikeet, now named “Pom-pom” by Michelle, was perched in a shrub by the path but looked very lonely and lost. He chirped and flopped awkwardly to the ground when approached so Becky and Pj thought perhaps they should rescue the poor poppet. Safe to say this Swainson’s Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus moluccanus) wasn’t complaining a bit when he was offered a lift and a warm place to sleep!
