Rainbow Lorikeet with Young.

Yesterday we had a family of Rainbow Lorikeets including two young come to our feeder. This is the first time we have seen juvenile Rainbow Lorikeets, they are the ones with the darker beak.

 Typical young are always squawking at mum and dad.

Beautiful birds! I've never seen the juveniles, those dark beaks really make them look different!

Loved the video and it is interesting to see that they have most of the adult colured plumage already

We get a lot of these noisy but beautiful creatures - especially as our fruit is ripening!! I haven't seen the juveniles beore. Must keep an eye out.

I've enjoyed feeding lorikeets nectar in an enclosure at the zoo, but to have them as visitors must be incredible! Love your photos and video!

I do love Rainbow Lorikeets! I need a feeder for our yard to encourage more birds to visit!
