The Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) is a species of Australasian parrot, unmistakable with its bright red beak and colourful plumage. Both sexes look alike, with a blue (mauve) head and belly, green wings, tail and back, and an orange/yellow breast. The Rainbow Lorikeet comprises at least 22 subspecies - more than any other parrot – including SWainson's lorikeet. Native to Australia and eastern Indonesia, these birds are found in large flocks. They roost in trees at night numbering in the hundreds and thousands. They mostly forage on the flowers of shrubs or trees to harvest nectar and pollen, but also eat fruits, seeds and some insects.
