As their name suggests, rainbow lorikeets are one of the most colourful and beautiful birds in the world.
A rainbow lorikeet can live for up to 30 years.
The rainbow lorikeet, with its Australasian origin, is a medium sized vibrant parrot known for its breathtakingly colorful appearance justifying the name. Like any other members of lorikeet family, these birds are also recognized as “brush-tongued parrots” due to their unique ways of excavating nectar and pollen from flowers
.Lorikeets are extremely enthusiastic bathers, choosing to give themselves a thorough soaking, perhaps three or four times a week. When kept in close proximity to people, their ability to mimic becomes apparent. Many repeat words without the owner having attempted to teach them “to talk”.
