WIld Bird Wednesday 560 - Rainbow Lorikeet.

The Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) would have to be in the running for the 'most brightly coloured bird in the world' award.  And they are common in my part of the world.

This individual was feeding by the side of the path in a local park when I stopped to photograph it.  As you can see, these birds are very nimble with both feet and beak.

Wonderful birds.

    The Rainbow Lorikeet is a stunning bird. All those colours are truly beautiful. I gather it hangs upside down a lot.
    All the best.
