About Us
Rainbow, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rainbow
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rainbow Lorikeet
Home: Brisbane, Australia
   Rainbow, clown of the birdworld, is a two-year-old rainbow lorikeet who lives in Brisbane Australia with his family of parrots and cockatoos - including lil' Chief, a Major Mitchell and Spike, a Galah. What makes Rainbow special is his wonderful social nature with people and ability to intimidate other birds twice his size. During the day Rainbow likes to greet visitors by flying onto their shoulder and whistle loudly into their ear, at night this changes to soft chatter usually with himself. The bold beautiful colors enhance the rainbow lorikeets' reputation of being the "Clowns" of the bird world.
