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 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 Bobby.

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.
