Rainbow Lorikeet

Michael John

Oatley, Australia

Artist's Description

This friendly bird is a daily visitor to my balcony from the nearby local bushland. He lands on a pot-plant or the balcony ledge and waits for some food. I place some food my palm and he then hops over onto my hand and eats it.
The Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) is a species of Australasian parrot found in Australia.
The bright colours of blue, green, yellow, red and purple make this parrot one of Australia’s most colourful and popular birds.
Captured: Sydney, NSW, Australia
Canon 400D, as is.
