Saturday/ the rainbow lorikeet

I found this spectacular rainbow lorikeet in a little green space in my brother’s neighborhood (Ron Carroll Park) while walking through there on Saturday morning.

The rainbow lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanusis) is a medium-sized species of parrot found in Australia.  The seeds and pollen on this woollybush must have been yummy, because he allowed me to get quite close. Semi-tame lorikeets are common daily visitors in many Sydney backyards, but they should not be fed bread crumbs (does not have the nutrients they need, especially for young ones). Better to get packets of mixed seeds from a pet store. [Source: Wikipedia]
