Hi MichaelSze! The birds in the second picture are not Rainbow Lorikeets, but hybrids: rainbow lorikeet x loriini (lories and lorikeets). They should be uploaded as a separate spotting. See the red crown, and nape which is blue instead of yellow. Another example here, probable from the same aviary:

We kindly ask you to indicate under habitat that these birds are captive. Thank you in advance.
