Howdy hi-dee ho!
How are you today?
We’ve had a string of difficult topics, so it’s time for something fun again! I figure it’s time to do something that brings out great big smiles for your kids.
Ever seen Rainbow Lorikeets ?
Look at all the different colors. Aren’t they beautiful?
These birds are some of the prettiest and funniest birds I have ever seen! I got to see all these rainbow lorikeets at a zoo, and wow — how amazing are they!
I’m gonna tell you a story about my day with the ‘lories (as they are called by the locals).
Are your kids smiling yet? I sure am. Just looking at these pictures makes me smile. 🙂
Do you see the birds having their dinner? What do you think they were eating?
They had a special birdie-friendly, soupy looking, oatmeal smelling, sloppy mix of goopy stuff! Those birdies were eating bird-porridge!
Can you see the funny bowl the birds are eating from?
At the zoo, you can hold these giant bowls by their extra long handles and the pretty birdies will fly right to your bowl and chow down. The birds get so excited! They fly from bowl to bowl, nibbling their goopy goodies as fast as they can.
At the zoo, there were hundreds and hundreds of these beautiful birds flying in for their dinner. They were just everywhere! Squawk! Squawk! Chirp! Screech! They were sooooooo noisy too.
They will even land on your head!!!!
Ha ha ha! Aren’t they such funny birds?
How many birds do you count in this picture? There are more than 10. Can you see them hiding in the trees?
What a great day that was to see soooooooooo many pretty birds, and to have such fun with them. I wish I had a video of that very special day.
Do you want to hear their funny little chirpy, squawky sounds? I have a video of a different day when I fed them in the rain. There was about 25 birds coming for dinner this day.

I hope these pretty birds bring a smile to your face today!
What are you going to do to bring a smile to your kids’ faces today? When your kids feel happier, everyone feels a little happier…..
There are lots of interesting options out in the world. So many cool animals, or amazing sights, or beautiful places. Take a break from the hard stuff, and reduce your stress by finding some time to enjoy life. Just have some fun.
Let part of your healing journey include time for fun and enjoying nature around you. 🙂
