Australian Rainbow Lorikeet.

Most pictures I have seen show them as much better groomed, but it was very windy in Perth and this may explain the ruffled appearance.

The Rainbow Lorikeet is a medium sized parrot, with the length ranging from 2530 cm (9.8-11.8 in) in size, and has a wingspan of about 17 cm (6.7 in). The weight varies from 75157 g (2.65.5 oz). The plumage of the nominate race, as with all subspecies, is very bright. The head is deep blue with a greenish-yellow nuchal collar, and the rest of the upperparts (wings, back and tail) are deep green. The chest is red with blue-black barring. The belly is deep green, and the thighs and rump are yellow with deep green barring. In flight a yellow wing-bar contrasts clearly with the red underwing coverts. There is little to visually distinguish between the sexes. Juveniles have a black beak which gradually brightens to orange in the adults.
