Artist's Description

Two Rainbow Lorikeets (Trichoglossus haematodus ) cooling down in my birdbath in 40Degrees C ( 100+ F). Frankston South, Australia. 30/01/2009
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.
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 egg
