General information about Rainbow Lorikeet :

Rainbow Lorikeets feed mainly on nectar an pollen from native plants such as Grevillias, Banksias, Eucyluptus and Bottlebrush (Callistemon) However their diet also consists of various fruits and will take a bite out of every immature apple on your tree!

The Rainbow Lorikeet is also considered a pest in places where it has been introduced such as Western Australia and New Zealand.
Rainbow Lorikeets are common in suburban gardens in Eastern Australia and are encouraged by many gardeners (who aren't attempting to grow fruit trees) by planting Grevillias and other bird attracting plants.
