Rainbow Lorikeet Trichoglossus haematodus

This most striking coloured and noisy bird is one of 328 species of parrots found and 1 of 21 subspecies of Lorikeets found over the south west Pacific.

Behaviour: These birds are normally found in flocks, large flocks at night roosting in trees (thousands) but during the daytime they move and feed in much smaller flocks ranging up to 20 odd birds Late evening you may see larger flocks as they head towards their roosting site They are arboreal, which means they like trees, and can be very noisy, active, gregarious (sociable) and are often seen in the company of other birds They will spend long times feeding in trees but in hot conditions will have an afternoon break from feeding.

Predators: Birds of prey like Raptors - peregrine and brown falcons and whistling kite are their main predators as a number of reptiles like the diamond python

Hi Loh
so nice shot, unbelievable colors, I like this shot very much.

Great shot Stephanie.
Its good that you got one bird in profile and one from in front so you can see the full colour scheme.
Your note is very good too.
My friend had a one legged lorikeet and it was very talkative. It also used to mimic the telephone which really confused its owners.

Hey Stephanie
Very nice shot and colorful,
Good composition,Excellent

Hi Stephanie.
You have captured very nice colourful shot. I like its composition, well saturated colours, excellent details and impressive BG.

Despite of application ISO 800 your picture is free from noise. However I avoid such values (just in case) and I use them as a last resort.

My compliments and best regards,

Nice shot, really well composed and colorfull.

Hi Stephanie,
An excellent shot on this pair of Lorikeets. Amazing colors and sharp detail in the plumage. You handled the DOF perfectly to keep the backround well OOF. Looks great!

Hi Stephanie

Hi Stephanie,

Hei Stephanie,
Very nice shot with beautiful colours. Very nice compo and POV.

Very nice shot, beautiful colors and detail.
Bye Tom

The colours look excellent. An attractive shot indeed. But I feel it would have been lot more interesting if the picture showed some interaction between the birds. Anyways, great work and thanks for sharing.

Very nice shot and colorful,
