What is a lorikeet?

Summer is in full swing at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT.  The aquariums latest "Special Exhibit" is an aviary set up in a beautiful courtyard and it is filled with 50 lorikeets.  Lorikeets are medium size tropical birds in the parrot family.  These rainbow colored birds are found in Australia, south-eastern Asia, Polynesia, and Papua New Guinea.   Lorikeets feed on nectar and fruit.  When visiting the aviary you will be surrounded by the free-flying lorikeets, it is a very hands on exhibit, you may even be lucky enough to have one land on you!!  Come visit the Maritime Aquarium and these beautiful birds.

Dagny - your charts are a colorful as the bird you promote. Being an Aussie and a bushie I am totally familiar with them especially the noisy rainbow variety. Thanks for the nostalgia.

Dagny, a lesson in real estate and the birds as well. Walking though an aviary with free flying birds can have it's exciting times as well. Not just statues can get hit

What a glorious bird! I would like to visit the Norwalk Aquarium. They have something similar at the Baltimore Aquarium where the birds fly all around you.

I never heard of a lorikeet Dagny.  Is the parikeet smaller?
