The Rainbow Lorikeet is unmistakable with its bright red beak and colourful plumage. Both sexes look alike, with a blue head and belly, green wings, tail and back, and an orange/yellow breast. They are often seen in loud and fast-moving flocks, or in communal roosts at dusk.
The Rainbow Lorikeet is most commonly found in coastal regions across northern and eastern Australia, living in a wide range of treed habitats including rainforest and woodlands, as well as in well-treed urban areas. It feeds on the flowers of shrubs or trees to harvest nectar and pollen, but also eats fruits, seeds and some insects.
The bird photography session was a great success. Bird feeding for the girls (and me), loads of images I was veryy happy with and some great detail of these colourful birds with great textures.
They are cheeky acrobats
