Photographer's Note

This little guy is called a Rainbow Lorikeet.
He was a very inquisitive animal, peeking around the tree to see what I was up to. Photo taken at the Toronto Zoo.

Lorikeets are pigeon-sized, stocky members of the parrot family. their legs are short and stocky; beaks are typically parrot-like, and their size and shape varying slightly with each genera.

They mainly live in mature tropical and subtropical wooded lowlands that offer food and nesting sites (rainforests, open eucalyptus woodland and occasionally mallee scrub), as they mainly eat friut, pollen and nectar.

**Post Pro - decreased green saturation, cropped closer slightly, and ran through NeatImage to remove the noise in the background.
