Wiki:
Lorikeets and lories are small, brightly coloured, highly aboreal parrots. They are usually classified as Loriinae, the most clearly distinct of the several rather uncertain subfamilies within the Psittacidae. Some authorities regard the differences between the Loriinae and the other parrots as sufficient to justify promoting the group to full family status, in which case, following the biological naming conventions, they become the Loriidae, and are placed alongside the remaining true parrots (Psittacidae) and the cockatoos (Cacatuidae) within the biological order Psittaciformes. The Ultramarine Lorikeet is endangered. It is now one of the 50 rarest birds in the world.

Hello Annick !
What a wonderful portrait of this beautiful bird ! Excellent details on the face and on the feathers, beautiful colors and exposure, wonderful composition. The black BG makes the bird stand out very nicely. Very well done !
Valerie.

Hi Annick,
An excellent shot, but it is not a Lorikeet. It is a Cockatiel. Both are from Australia, and are often displayed together in zoos. The St. Louis Zoo has them together. Excposure, colors, and detail look great in this nice portrait shot.
