Yellow-bibbed Lory

This is Freddie in mid flight. He has just been annoying Boris, an oriental Havana Brown cat, by pinching the cat biscuits that Boris was eating. He gave Boris a nip on the ear and quickly removed the last biscuit before flying away. Poor Boris was not happy.
(Boris and Freddie are good friends, Freddie does not normally nip Boris and in return Boris does not try to eat Freddie)
Although not exactly in focus, this image shows the tail feathers fully extended with red upper colour and yellow on the lower half of each feather. The yellow-bib on red chest is very striking as is the white patches on each wing and the black tipped red flight feathers.
