Scaly Breasted Lorikeet:
Trichoglossus chlorolepidotus

  • This is a very pretty green parrot. It's distinguishing feature that gives it the common name are the yellow spots on the green breast that appear as scales.

  • The orange beak appears bright in contrast to the greens of the rest of the bird.

  • It is often seen mixed in with flocks of 'rainbow lorikeets', of which it is similar in size and behaviour.

  • The call is also similar, but slightly more mechanical or 'tinny' in sound.
