Lorikeet

In Australia, these common and brightly coloured parrots cause damage in orchards and vineyards.  Lorikeets have specialised brush-tipped tongues for feeding on nectar and soft fruits.

Their tongues help them to collect the nectar and pollen. They tend to roost in large groups and can be seen at dusk, arriving in their hundreds at their favourite roosting place, usually tall Eucalyptus trees.

DID YOU KNOW? We have 2 different Lorikeet spcies, the green naped and the Swainson's. Both are a type of Rainbow Lorikeet.
