The most counted Aussie Backyard Bird.....

is the Rainbow Lorikeet.

That was the result of BirdLife Australia’s 2020 Aussie Backyard Bird Count.

Overall, Rainbow Lorikeets finished on top of the list throughout Australia, with more than half a million counted for the year. These colourful birds have finished on top every year since the Aussie Bird Count began in 2014.

They are noisy and entertaining with their antics.

However, the gorgeous colours of the rainbow lorikeet conceal an aggressive bird that bullies native birds out of their nesting sites and whose feeding habits can devastate fruit farms. They are considered an unwanted organism or pest in most Australian states.

I recently visited my daughter in suburban Melbourne and captured these birds in her backyard from the back verandah.
