#TIL The #GNOME Video App Can Search, Play & Save #YouTube Videos //

Did you know that you can watch YouTube videos on the Ubuntu desktop without using a web browser? Chances are you did, but it's taken me a while to notice it!

was watching galahs eating from bird feeder, and was struck by the thought - they're a small bird.

no they aren't, but the galahs were hoping around like rainbow lorikeets, in a way that 'little' corellas can't do without hitting their heads and getting annoyed.

this is a beautiful photo of a galah.

(as a musk-lorikeet is to a rainbow-lorikeet, a galah is to a corella; size wise)
Galah on a Melaleca tree, it was checking out a nest hollow.

musk lorikeets are noisy; and usually stay high in the [gum] tree.

they [musks] come down on occasion and sit on the clothes line watching as i put seed out for other birds (or as i feed meat to magpies or currawongs), but seem to keep a distance if i'm carrying camera-phone or camera. the musks have never expressed any interest in seed.

today for a couple of hours the single [rainbow] lorikeet (parrots usually hang around in pairs) was hanging around with a musk lorikeet. they'd arrive together, depart together and during that time acted like a couple.

the seed bowl was filled with sunflower seed (favorite of rainbow lorikeets) which i don't think impressed the musk-lorikeet. they [rainbow+musk] didn't stay that long, however a short time later the [single] rainbow-lorikeet returned to eat the sunflower-seed alone, without the musk.

the single-rainbow & single-musk acting like a "couple", even if only a short while grabbed me. 
The Musk Lorikeet - Glossopsitta concinna, is a medium-sized, sturdy lorikeet. Musk Lorikeets are endemic to south-eastern Australia, being widespread in eastern New South Wales, all regions of Victoria and the south-east of South Australia.

walked into backyard today to find galahs.

pretty much the same as corellas, only color varies (pink & grey). went inside and got a camera; alas memory card error & only a tiny first portion of first photograph is viewable
