Rainbow lorrikeets

These rainbow lorrikeets were busy sorting out a pecking order when I spotted them.


  1. They look like they're getting a little aggressive.
    Sydney - City and Suburbs

  2. Wow, I've only seen those at Your Basic Bird, our old pet store in Berkeley, CA. They sold for hundreds of dollars. It is so fun to see them in the (domesticated) wild :-). We had a band of wild green parrots in the giant trees near our house in Berkeley. There was also a band of them in San Francisco, and it was thought that they had started from some escaped pets.

    What a splash of color and motion you've captured!

  3. What fantastically colorful birds.
