Australia is fortunate to have wonderful, unique and iconic wildlife. This site is dedicated to promoting its enjoyment and preservation.
RLO2 Rainbow Lorikeets
Rainbow Lorikeet, Tachyglossus haemotodus.

Preening is an important part of every birds' routine. Lorikeets seem to luxuriate in having this chore done by their partner, returning the 'favour' with equal attention to detail. This activity is often followed by sleep, especially when resting-up during the hottest part of the day.

They survive largely on a sugary diet, either directly as pollen from flowers or from fruit which they crush with their beaks before licking up the juice.
