Lorikeets

Lorikeets… Best birds, or best birds ever?

These photos were taken from the Aquarium of the Pacific in lovely Long Beach, California. Among their fantastic displays of aquatic sea life, they also have a lorikeet habitat. From what I understand, these birds are like pigeons in their native land of Australia, being far too plentiful to be considered as anything but a nuisance. In small, manageable groups, though, it’s far easier to appreciate them for their fantastic plumage and their seeming childlike curiosity.
