[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the many gorgeous parrot or lorikeet-like birds we saw in one of the aviaries at the Bali Bird Park.
These turn out to be immature yellow-streaked lories.
Thank you, Steve (cuckooroller) for the I.D. help.
You are the best!

Yellow-streaked Lory
Chalcopsitta scintillata

Found in lowland savanna, montane forest, mangroves and coconut plantations of southern New Guinea and the Aru Islands, the Yellow-streaked Lory is fairly common in the wild and abundant throughout its range.

The Yellow-streaked Lory is a green bird with a bright red forehead, crown, thighs and underwing covert feathers. At the crown, the head is black which extends to the chest and blends with the green belly. Yellow streaking occurs over the entire underside of the bird. Its beak, feet and skin around the eye are black. C. s. chloroptera has mostly green underwing coverts and the body color is lighter with narrower streaking. C. s. rubifrons has wider, more orange streaking on its breast, which is browner than in the nominate species. In the wild, the Yellow-streaked lory primarily feeds on the nectar and pollen of Syzygium, Brassaia actinophylla, sago palms and Schefflera.

Hello Manyee,
I like the colors and the perfect closeup shot. Truly colorful indeed. Well done Ganesh

Hello Manyee
I agree 100%. This is indeed a beauty. It looks as if it is wearing a bow tie, and as its feathers have been "brylcreamed" for the occasion. The bright colours of the plumage are catching and you have captured it with great preciseness, in order to show all the details with great clarity. Sorry I have no clue what the ID is, but this "nameless" bird is surely a stunner. Great close-up displaying the colours very well. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.

Hello Manyee

A beautiful capture of these lovely parrots.
The POV and DOF are excellent.
Wonderful plumage detail .
Super focus and sharpness.

hello Manyee
good close-up capture and portrait photo of this colourful bird
i like pose, light, colours, sharpness and details

Hello Manyee,
Fantastic photo of this Parrot. I'm very curious about the ID. It looks a bit like the Blue-rumped Parrot, psittinus cyanurus. Incredible sharp details and very beautiful clear colours. Great POV and eye-contact.

Wow, Manyee, that's beautiful, like a christmas-ball ;-) The colours are amazing, also excellent sharpness, a wonderful bird, I like it very much, thanks.
Must be great to see this guy flying and glittering like jewels in the sun ...

przepiękne kolorki! Bardzo dobra ostrość, piękna poza ptakˇw. Bardzo dobry DOF...
Gratuluję i pozdrawiam

I'll have to take your word for it that the greens on this bird are natural. It is incredible. I've not seen anything like it. I love all the feather detail. Nice focus and depth of field...

Hello Manyee , Lovely fellows , Splendid shot of capture , great sharpnes colours pov and bg ,very good tfs ,Greetings Teunie .

Ciao Manyee,
fantastico taglio compositivo con i parrocchetti contrapposti, la straordinaria nitidezza di quello in primo piano e la leggera sfocatura del secondo, mi piace molto il riflesso degli occhi, i colori sono fantastici e tutta l'immagine Ŕ pervasa da una meravigliosa luminositÓ.
