The rainbow lorikeet is one of the most colorful birds in Australia. They are widespread in eastern and northern Australia, and also around Perth. Separated from their natural range by thousands of kilometres, the feral Rainbow Lorikeets of Perth had become established by the late 1960s. In the 1980s, the population expanded.

This very wet Lorikeet was taken at the Biotropica south of Rouen France in June this year.
Many thanks for the awards on my Sloth, pm,s sent, and to the very nice V,s & C,s much appreciated Dave
