|Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus Haematodus)|
The Rainbow Lorikeet is a 320mm bird. It has green over most of the bird's body with orange breast feathers, blue head and abdomen, red beak and dark green back. The eye has a red colour that matches the beak and has a light green colour on the back of its neck.
It has a sweet, very calm and soothing voice, but it can be very loud and disturbing at the end of calls between one another.
They are often called greedy feeders, because they make such a mess as they try to consume as much as they possibly can.
Habitat is widespread, where blossoms are available. It is primarily a bird of coastal lowlands, forests, woodlands, city parks, suburban trees, heaths and gardens and sometimes mangroves and mallee.

Muy bello el contraste de los colores del ave, en relación a su entorno. Se ve hermoso, toda la composición es muy buena. Los colores son brillantes. Me encantó.
Very colourful bird, it looks almost painted the way the colours are. Shame about the branch in the way.
Beautiful Bird with vivid colours !
