Rainbow Lorikeets

The Rainbow Lorikeet, Trichoglossus haematodus is a species of Australasian parrot found in Australia, eastern Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. In Australia, it is common along the eastern seaboard, from Queensland to South Australia and northwest Tasmania. Its habitat is rainforest, coastal bush and woodland areas. I figured most of you would not be able to continue through your day unless you knew the above information. 🙂 This image was take an year ago at the Columbus Zoo.


Today is my oldest granddaughters birthday, the daughter of my oldest daughter. Hope you followed that. So I want to say, “Happy Birthday, Abbie!” I love you!

  1. Great shot Monte. I can tell you that it’s amazing to see flocks of these birds zooming through downtown Sydney. They are everywhere!

  2. @Drew: No that would be quite a sight. These were in a caged in area where people could walk among them and feed them.
