Rainbow Lorikeet

Back on Saturday 15 March I took the family to Shorncliffe for a lunch of fish & chips by beautiful Moreton Bay. After lunch we stopped in at Moora Park where I took some photos of these gorgeous Rainbow Lorikeets.

They seem to be enjoying the nectar of these flowers

Rainbow Lorikeets are common where I live in Brisbane, Australia. They are a species of Australasian parrot famed for their beautiful plumage and energetic and playful nature. They are not a particularly large bird with heights ranging from 25-30 cm (9.8-11.8 in) in size, with a wingspan of about 17 cm (6.7 in). Their diet consists mainly of pollen and nectar.

We're very lucky to have such beautiful wildlife
