The Rainbow Lorikeet grows to 25-30cm. The plumage on head and belly is blue, that on the back, underbelly and tail is green, and that of the neck is red. The geographic range is situated in North and East Australia, as well as on many South West Pacific islands, stretching as far as Indonesia. Light forests, parks, gardens and coconut groves serve as habitat. The nest is frequently in a hollow tree and is usually lined with decayed wood. During the breeding period from August to January the female lays 2 eggs and hatches these alone. The offspring are ready to leave the nest after 7 – 8 weeks. The food consists of juicy fruits, pollen and nectar, to which the Lorikeet is well adapted due to the brush-shaped, frayed tongue, thus playing an important role in the pollination of many types of trees and shrubs. Sometimes seeds and insects are also on the menu.
