In My Backyard

The flowering trees around Cairns in the springtime is really a pretty site!. Pictured here “In My Backyard”,  the Cassia tree  is often visited by the Rainbow Lorikeet Birds coming to forage nectar and pollen from the pink blossoms.  This is a common sight in and around Cairns and is a birdwatchers paradise.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Tropical Kiss

The screeching of the beautiful Eclectus Parrots cuts through the silence of the Rainforests and echos for miles across mountain ranges to reach the woody plains and outbacks of Cape York Pennisula.  The Male is the Green Parrot and the Female is the Red.  This pair is perched on the Native Penda tree which is the floral emblem of Cairns.
