Olive Scaly-breasted Lorikeet
This is Olive, a male olive coloured Scaly-breasted Lorikeet, with his close
friend Sweetie, a female green Scaly-breasted lorikeet.
They are now inseparable and are the noisy twins. When the avairies are open
Olive and Sweety will visit other birds and will usually gang up to chase
others away from their food bowls. They then set about plundering and
demolishing any pears or apples. The only place they do not get away with
this behaviour is in the Yellow-bibs avairy where Nippy sees them off.
They were bought together from Birds Galore (Otahuhu, Auckland) in
March 2000. They were already bonded so we decided to keep them
together even though Sweetie was originally purchased as a new mate for
