Brightly coloured Black-capped Lory in the huge aviary in Singapore. Originally donated from Australia, these birds have bred well and seem to be in excellent condition. They have a gentle nature and eat from vistors hands, as seenin the WS.

Hello Murray,
This is a fine profile portrait!

The colours are outstanding, a beautiful bird!

Hi Murray,

a nice image of the crimson lorikeet, the photo has good composition, sharpness and beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Murray,
Donated by Australia, however, not an Australian bird. This is Black-capped Lory (Lorius lory), and hails from New Guinea and nearby island groups. Unfortunately, I don't have a full frontal so desuming from what I can see, this is probably an adult race erythrothorax.

EDIT: Lest anyone is confused as to the identity of this bird. The name Crimson Lorikeet is sometimes (rarely and only in Australia) used to indicate another bird (not this one), i.e., the Crimson Rosella, which is truly an Australian bird.

Hi Murray,
Vivid color, beautiful bird the Crimson Lorikeet.
The eye and beak are well focused, nice detail there.
Great post & TFS,

What a BEAUTY.!!!
Do you know where I could "buy" one of these?
LOVELY colours.
Do these species mimic human speech?
Warm regards from COLD COLD Calgary,

Hello Murray
Beautiful color and excellent sharpness on this Lory portrait. Very soft Bokeh.
