“Scaly-breasted Lorikeets”

~ The story behind the photo ~

Two scaly-breasted lorikeets at the entrance of their tree hollow. One with its head in the other looking at the camera.

Of the 50 species of Lories and lorikeets in the world, 7 are native to Australia. A pair of Scaly-breasted Lorikeets (Trichoglossus chlorolepidotus) are rearing their young in a tree hollow at Peacehaven Park in Highfields, Queensland. If (when?) you visit, they’re easy to see near the pond.
