Rainbow Lorikeet

Trichoglossus haematodus

Description:

This pair of rainbow lorkeets were getting cosy on a rainy afternoon in my garden.

Habitat:

Rainforests, city parks and gardens in the Greater Brisbane region.

Notes:

These birds often visit my garden and I have included a video of a courting pair. The video is not high quality as it was a rare moment of grabbing whatever I could put my hands on to quickly record the action. The female does not seem the least bit interested and she gives a whole new meaning to kick boxing! The male lorikeet is hilarious as he struts his stuff!

Lovely colors.

WOW!

Lovely colors! Beautiful!

I love the colors! Beautiful!

Too cute! Beautiful colors.

Rainbow Lorikeets are the F1-11 fighter planes of the birds. Super fast with crazy manoeuvres. Must be all that sweet nectar.
