Photographed at Denhams Beach, New South Wales, Australia.
Rainbow Lorikeet, Trichoglossus haematodus is unmistakable with its bright red beak and colourful plumage. Both sexes look alike, with a blue (mauve) head and belly, green wings, tail and back, and an orange/yellow breast. They are often seen in loud and fast-moving flocks, or in communal roosts at dusk.

The Rainbow Lorikeet occurs in coastal regions across northern and eastern Australia, as well as a local population
in Perth (Western Australia), initiated from aviary releases. They are found in a wide range of treed habitats which
includes rainforest and woodlands, as well as in well-treed urban areas and are largely sedentary with some
nomadic movements in response to seasonal flowering or fruiting of plants.

The Rainbow Lorikeet mostly forages on the flowers of shrubs or trees to harvest nectar and pollen, but also eats fruits, seeds and some insects. They appear to have benefited from artificial feeding stations and prolific-fruiting
and flowering trees and shrubs in urban gardens. They have acclimatised well to urbanisation and are commonly encountered in well-treed suburbs.

The eggs of the Rainbow Lorikeet are laid on chewed, decayed wood, usually in a hollow limb of a eucalypt tree.
Both sexes prepare the nest cavity and feed the young, but only the female incubates the eggs.
