Rainbow lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus). Brisbane Botanic Garden, Australia.
At the Conservation Show. Thought I'd show you the Conservation Show area that is completely netted. Not only to keep the birds in but to protect them from the wild falcons, hawks etc. that would come and try and get the birds (before it was netted off).
The Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) is a species of Australasian parrot found in Australia, eastern Indonesia (Maluku and Western New Guinea), Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. In Australia, it is common along the eastern seaboard, from Queensland to South Australia and northwest Tasmania. Its habitat is rainforest, coastal bush and woodland areas. Several taxa traditionally listed as subspecies of the Rainbow Lorikeet are increasingly treated as separate species (see Taxonomy).
