Hi Harriet,

Yes, you're correct. There are a few types of Rainbow Lorikeets, these are Swainson's Lorikeet's, I think, I'm no expert. Some people think they are a pain as they can make quite a racket when the get together for a chat, but I like it. I'de rather that than lawn mowers and edge trimmers

What beautiful birds. They're so colorful it's hard to believe they're real.

What's amazing is how the brilliant colour of the birds help them diss-appear so easily in tree foliage.
