Rainbow Lorikeets are considered one of the most common backyard birds in Australia. They are boisterous social birds often seen in loud and fast-moving flocks, unmistakable with their bright red beaks and colourful primary coloured plumage.
We have a pair who roost in a tree in our backyard. Nicknamed Mr and Mrs Squawk we always know when they are at home. They are loud domesticated bickerers who breed prolifically and push the fledglings out of the nest when it is time for them to leave home.
I have been told Lorikeets were introduced to Western Australia in the late 1960’s when a pair escaped from the confines the University of WA Campus. They are now considered pests due to their numbers and poaching of native bird habitats.
