2022—Rainbow

The Rainbow Lorikeet is one of the most colorful parrots, maybe one of the most colorful of all birds. Its spectacular feathers include every color of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. We watched a pair of wild Rainbow Lorikeets from a few feet away as they perched in a nearby tree in The Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens. It was a special sight to see. Its mate had just flown off when I took this shot. It seems to be awaiting the mate’s return. I thought I had a colorful companion parrot, a Red-lored Amazon whose intense green and red feathers combined with yellow and blue feathers, make her my year-round Christmas ornament. But while Bobo’s colors are intense, they are drab by comparison to this gorgeous bird.
