Rainbow Lorikeet: Trichoglossus haematodus

  • The 'Rainbow Lorikeet' is, as the name suggests, literally all the colours of the rainbow.

  • It is found along the east coast and throughout the tropics of Australia where it can be very common and numerous.

  • It is often heard whizzing by in flocks above the rainforest canopy.

  • Due to the height and thickness of the canopy, these birds are more commonly noticed on the edge of the forest or in urban  areas where there are appropriate flowering trees..
