Rainbow lorikeet

Life is a very social event to a flock of Rainbow lorikeets. These flocks can number in there thousands and the noise is something that would qualify as noise pollution. Rainbows lorikeets start their morning before the crack of dawn and are still telling each other fabulous stories well after dark, long after other species have tucked themselves under a wing and called it a day.

A rainbow lorikeet can eat a wide variety of different foods including Pollen, nectar, blossoms, fruit, berries, seeds, some insects and their larvae. When eating pollens and nectar the Rainbow lorikeets utilises its tongue which is quite like a brush and it quickly sweeps up the pollen and devours it.
