Rainbow Lorikeets
live in most Australian forests and woodland, and are often observed in city gardens and parklands. These colourful birds often pair for life and flock together in groups of two to fifty by day to several hundred when roosting at night. They are active and noisy, often seen screeching loudly while feeding and clambering among the foliage of flowering trees. They are blossom-feeders, eating the nectar and pollen, as well as fruit, leaf buds and insects on the trees. Two eggs are laid in a nest of decayed wood dust in a hollow limb or hole of a tree. Only the female incubates the eggs, while both parents feed the chicks.
