If they are near your house you can try to lure them inside with apple or broccolli then close them in and then call Art so he can come get them. They are Rainbow Lorikeets (NOT our usual rosellas) and a pest and big risk to native birds despite their bright, cute demeanor. DOC want to try and work out where they are in Piha.
