Rainbow Lorikeet

The Rainbow Lorikeet is a true parrot found all over the Eastern seaboard of Australia, the colours are bright and many on this bird.

We saw these in the Bottlebrush tree across the road from our house, they seemed to be eating the flowers, although they do feed on the pollen and nectar of flowers as well as fruit.

The Rainbow Lorikeet is monogamous and remain together for many years if not for life, the eggs are incubated by the female alone.
