Larry here. Just in case we haven't met, let me introduce myself. I am a Rainbow Lorrikeet and I was born in Townsville 3 years ago. My mum Sue raised me from when I was just a few weeks old. She hand fed me with a spoon every few hours (no wonder I love her!).
My name is Larry - but I must point out one important thing.
I AM A GIRL
Mum originally thought I was a boy, so I had to prove that she was wrong. That was pretty easy. I just started laying eggs. However, as I am a talking bird, I had already learnt to say my name and she thought it would confuse me if she changed it.
I go EVERYWHERE with her. I ride around on her shoulder all day long. I love going out with her to the shops, the post office...well anywhere actually. I must be smart because I can say about 40 different things. If I am good, mum buys me a chuba chub when we go to the shops (the peach flavoured ones are my favourites). People always come up to mum and I and talk to us. They usually think I am pretty cool and I talk to them and do some of my impersonations. I am VERY good at quaking like a duck.
Anyway, this page is where mum and I are going to list my favourite websites on the net. It will gradually grow over the next few months and I would LOVE to hear from you if you know of some great websites. Just drop us an email at
Maybe you have your own homepage? If you do, we would love to see them. I hope we hear from you soon.
Lots of Love
Larry (the girl!!)
