Or the “Tweedles” for short. When I started this Lewis Carroll inspired journey, rereading both Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, there were some local birds which were obvious choices to ‘play’ characters in my own version of the Alice books. The Tweedles very obviously were like our galahs. As they mate for life they are always visiting in pairs, and there is a playful mischief to them… so of course they had to be eyeing off a pink donut… the question is, which one will get to it first.
