RLO1 Rainbow Lorikeet
Rainbow Lorikeet, Trichoglossus Haemotodus.

Rainbow lorikeets have to be my favourite Australian birds. Even allowing for their obvious beauty and striking colours it is their personalities that shine through. Like probably all parrots they are both feisty and quarrelsome on the one hand and caring and faithful on the other. They are a common sight throughout eastern and northern Australia and can easily be encouraged to feeders and patios.

This yawning bird was photographed from my office window in Sydney, New South Wales and is the most popular print on the site.
