Iridescent bird by thanatopsis-mortis Iridescent bird by thanatopsis-mortis
As soon as someone tells me exactly what kind of bird this is I will change the description, till then this is one of my favorite photos I've taken so far.

That would be a lorikeet, very common around my part of Australia as both a wild bird and a pet. I'm willing to be it's a Rainbow lorikeet, but rainbows should have a pure red mottling on the chest without the green flashes. *ponderrs* Yep, it's definately Rainbow, but you may have a subspecies I don't know of with this picture!

thank you very much, I was guessing parakeet, but I knew I was wrong, so I left it up to a viewer.

*nods* No problem. Parakeets are what we call budiges over here, and Loris are very much brighter, a bit bigger, and MUCH noiser!
