About the Rainbow Lorikeets:

Rainbow lorikeets are small parrots with a blue head and an orange beak and eyes.  Their body and wings are covered in brightly coloured red, green, blue, yellow and orange feathers. 

Habitat and Distribution

Rainbow lorikeets are found around trees in forests and parks in Australia and nearby islands. 

Rainbow lorikeets pair for life and usually live large flocks. They make a nest in a hole in a tree and lay two or three eggs; both parents help to raise the young.
