Purple-crowned Lorikeet

Purple-crowned Lorikeet (Image ID 37030)
CommentThe Eucalypts were in full flower and the breeding season was in full swing. Pairs of Rainbow Lorikeets, Elegant Parrots, Crimson Rosellas and Purple-crowned Lorikeets were belting everywhere in a mad scramble to get the best nesting sites. This pair had a close look at this nest and whilst the sexes are the same in appearance I suspect the female is carrying out the inspection while the male is there hanging off every word she says.
