Kaz Plays the Thief – Bird Life Photography


Kaz the rainbow lorikeet checks the coastline before he breaks into  the bird-cage to steal food and hang out.

Kaz plays a thief, checking all around him before he checks into the cage to eat Boz’s food. This pet lorikeet grew up in this cage and while our house is still his home, he lives in the palm trees in the wild. He knows he is welcome anytime at the Bellbowrie house. The rainbow lorikeet gets his own food, but he prefers to bully his younger rivalry Boz who is waiting to grow flying feathers while living in Kaz’s old cage. The funny thing is, Boz, the scale-breasted baby lorikeet is not afraid of Kaz at all. Sometimes, he would climb out and let’s Kaz play in the cage.

However, he really wants to get into the bird-cage and see what is there. Kaz tries Boz’s water. JK.Leahy Picture©

A very annoyed Boz waits in the bottom corner for his older aggressive visitor to do whatever he wants and hopefully get out of his home. Sometimes, we have to chase Kaz out and close the cage so Boz can relax. JK.Leahy Picture©

Sometimes, a neck scratch is called for, just to assure Boz – he is the boss of the cage after all and everything is fine.

  1. Adorable. The only thing I don’t like about pet birds is that they shit all over the house when you let them out. You have to cover everything up! no, I don’t have bird companions but I know many who do.

    1. Thank you! And yes, you are quite right – they do poop wherever they go in the house, just like they do in the wild. With Boz – he prefers to poop in his cage so he is quite civilised :). Not sure he worked his toilet out. We only have to replace the re-cycled newspaper twice per week inside the cage. Kaz did roam and poop the lounge, but he left home as soon as he could fly. Their poop doesn’t stink like the chicken poop – but it does leave a white stain which like white paint and is quite stubborn.
