Rainbow lorikeets (Trichoglossus haematodus) are a species of Australasian parrot found in Australia, eastern Indonesia (Maluku and Western New Guinea), Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. It is widespread in the Melbourne area. It is feeding on a native gum tree, Eucalyptus leucoxylon "Flowering Yellow Gum", which is currently in bloom all over Melbourne.
