Thank you Neil! You are right, his colors are very similar to the rainbow lorikeets, but he is much smaller, and I didn't hear a peep from him;-)

What a lovely spotting. He's beautiful. The colours remind me of rainbow lorikeets, but I'm sure this little fellow is much quieter and has far better manners. Congratulations, Stephanie, on you SOTD.
