Rainbow Lorikeet


A rainbow lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) lands near me to feed on spider flowers (Grevillea sp.), using its tongue to lap up the sweet nectar. Though common, this brilliantly colored parrot is always wonderful to see, usually flocking by the dozens in the early morning and evening.
