Lorikeets display a variety of unique behaviors. See if you can identify each one that is highlighted by tapping on them.
Bobbing up and down can signal a lorikeet’s desire to mate. Lorikeets dig nesting burrows under logs and rocks where they lay eggs.
Lorikeets feed on nectar as well as soft fruits and insects. Look closely, and you’ll discover a bristly tip on their tongues to help them lap up their food.
While it may look odd, this behavior helps clean and realign flight feathers so that the lorikeets can fly.
Our birds can be loud. They are highly social and use their vocalizations to communicate with the rest of the flock, especially if predators are near.
