This colourful, boisterous and noisy parrot is well-known in Australia. It visits suburban gardens to feed on flower nectar and fruits. Flocks fly fast, calling loudly, flashing their bright red, yellow and blue colours. Amazingly, once they land in the tree canopy these lorikeets just seem to disappear, despite their boldly coloured plumage.
Love these cheeky birds the Rainbow Lorikeets. Taken at Penrith NSW.

The Rainbow Lorikeets visit the flowering native shrubs in our garden to feed noisily.

I’ve had my new lens for 4 weeks now and travel to Adelaide for a short vaccation. Walking along the Torrens River there were beautiful Rainbow Lorikeets everywhere … i sat and patiently watched them and tried to focus on the moving birds … i think took about 50 shots and was deleting them all when i came across this one beauty that was all in focus! yay!
