1. The Rainbow Lorikeet
The Rainbow Lorikeet, (Trichoglossus haematodus) is a species of Australasian
parrot found in Australia, eastern Indonesia (Maluku and Western New Guinea),
Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. In Australia,
it is common along the eastern seaboard, from Queensland to South Australia and
northwest Tasmania. Its habitat is rainforest, coastal bush and woodland areas.
Several taxa traditionally listed as subspecies of the Rainbow Lorikeet are
increasingly treated as separate species. There is little to visually
distinguish between the sexes, however to a keen observer of their coloring and
behavior, their dimorphism is readily apparent.
