Rainbow Lorikeet

I’m sorry that this picture is a little bit blurry, but these birds were always moving around so it was difficult to capture a good picture.  This is a Rainbow Lorikeet.  They are seen all over Australia (definitely all along the East coast, as far as I could tell) and they are very screechy, making a lot of noise early in the morning.  They’re easily spotted in trees because of their bright coloration and are always found in groups which makes them all the louder.  This is the main bird that I think of when I think of Australia birds, mostly just because of how often I saw it and how identifiable it is.
