25 Sep About the photo – “Scaly-breasted Lorikeets”
~ The story behind the photo ~
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.
