The Rainbow Lorikeet 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.
Rainbow Lorikeets have been introduced to Perth – Western Australia, Auckland – New Zealand, Amsterdam – The Netherlands and Hong Kong. (care of Wikipedia)
