Trichoglossus moluccanus

Rainbow Lorikeet - inhabits coastal bush, rainforests, woodland and urban areas. They feed mainly on fruit, pollen and nectar but also eat fruits, seeds and some insects. They often travel together in pairs and occasionally respond to calls to fly as a flock. Common along the eastern seaboard, from northern Queensland to South Australia. Hundreds of these colourful parrots would ascend to the trees to roost in Bundaberg Australia where I took these photographs.
