rainbow lorikeet feeding on flowers of corkwood tree Euodia elleryana syn Melicope

Rainbow lorikeet Trichoglossus haematodus IMG 6595 - The rainbow lorikeet is one of the most colourful birds in Australia, and is often seen in large flocks, but this bird, which was visiting the photographer's garden, enjoyed a banquet all on its own. The flowers of the Australian native corkwood tree (Melicope elleryana syn. Euodia elleryana) contain nectar that is a major part of the bird's diet, and it was in no hurry to leave.
