Thanks J and Shanna.. Crossbreeding it not unusual around here.. I have seen them nesting together last year! :)

Hmm, strange one. The blue head and the red spots on the chest are Rainbow-ish rather than Scaly-Breasted-ish. You might be right about the cross-breed (pretty unusual though)??

What a beautiful bird, Christiane!! I'm not sure about the crossbreed. :)

Could be a crossbreed with a rainbow lorikeet?!?!
