Australian Birds Calendar

Scientific name: Trichoglossus haematodus
Family: Psittacidae

The Rainbow Lorikeet 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.

They are such colourful parrots that it is hard to mistake them for other species. The related Scaly-breasted Lorikeet is similar in size and shape, but can be distinguished by its all-green head and body.

Found in coastal regions across northern and eastern Australia, with a local population in Perth (Western Australia), initiated from aviary releases.

The Rainbow Lorikeet has a wide range of treed habitats including rainforest and woodlands, as well as in well-treed urban areas.
