Rainbow Lorikeet, Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney

Our holiday in New South Wales

September 2007

One of the delights we enjoyed while visiting the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney was the prolific bird life. Included in my list of birds was the Rainbow Lorikeet shown in the photo above.

This bird kept screeching at people passing below the tree. I suspect it was investigating the hollow in the tree as a potential nesting site, or it may have already established a nest in the hollow. I caught it in mid-screech in this photo. Click on the photo to enlarge the image.
