Trickle Treat!

Had a few groups this year, about 15 kids in all, ages ranging from about 3 up to 14 or so.  Got rid of about half my candy so far.  Only ate one piece myself.

Tap Tap On My Window

More of a thud, really.

Opened the door expecting to scare off a raiding possum, but found a rainbow lorikeet instead.  I think it my have flown into the window and dazed itself.  It was skittish but not panicked when I approached to check on it, so the neighbours may have been feeding it.

It wasn't obviously hurt, so I put out a little dish of peach slices for it and left it to recover.  Not sure what else to do, and calling the local wildlife rescue volunteers seems a bit excessive given that they not exactly rare hereabouts.  (They flock in the trees near the railway station, and the collective noise at sunset in summer is astounding.)

Update: Lori was still there this afternoon, so I called WIRES, the Australian wildlife rescue service.  Sadly, Lori passed away before a volunteer could arrive to help.  I donated $100 in her name.  Well, in my name, since lorikeets can't get credit cards, but in her memory.
