Hybrid Lorikeet

Hybrid Rainbow/Scaly-breasted Lorikeet. This lorikeet is quite large and compares to a Rainbow in length and build. It has the rainbow's blue head but no distinct light green collar. The chest is a mix of the Rainbow's Red/Orange and the Scaly's Yellow/Green giving an overall pleasant mixed colour appearance. Back and wings are green, under is most red with green and yellow, and tail is green/yellow underneath.
Beak is orange, legs black, thighs a mix of colours.
One most noticeable feature of the plumage is it's softness, it is very warm and fine to the touch when compared to either Rainbow or Scaly plumage.
Voice is similar to a Rainbow.
