Rainbow Lorikeet

Region: Australasia

Class: Aves

Order: Psittaciformes

Family: Psittacidae

Genus: Loriinae

Scientific Name: Loriinae sp.

Description: Lories are pigeon-sized, stocky members of the parrot family. Legs are short and stocky; beaks are typically parrot-like, their size and shape varying slightly with each genera as does the shape and contour of the tail. The Chattering and Black Capped Lories (Lorius) tend to have short and slightly rounded tails; the Rainbow Lorikeets (Trichoglossus) tend to have narrower tails graduating to a point. Males and females look alike. Lorikeets do not lend themselves easily to a generalized description. They are often island and area specific in size and colouring, depending on the presence of predators and the nature of forest features where they evolved.

Rainbow Lorikeets: Length 25-30 cm Weight 100-157 g

This is a lovely shot, Pam. Very nice background, good colors and excellent pose. Well done & TFS!


What a nice colour with excellent sharpness

Hi Pam,
This is so sharp! Like I said before to Arfer, I must try to shot in RAW, it seems to make a big difference. This is very well done with excellent POV and composition, colors and exposure. Very good! Thanks,

Hi Pam.
Lovely lorikeet u got here. It's a nice pose too! I like the composition but i would suggest saturating the colors a little more so i tried a workshop. Just a tiny difference.

I have some lorikeet photos too if you wanna check them out.
