Lorikeet Landing

On January 7, 2001 at the Santa Barbara Zoological Gardens in Santa Barbara, CA.

Lorikeet Landing features several brilliant birds, including the Red Lory, Violet-necked Lory, Green-naped Lorikeet and the Swainson's Lorikeet.  They have a peculiar, brushlike tongue, which enables them to lick up flower nectar.  We had purchased little cups of nectar for them to drink.  It's a great opportunity to meet these beautiful birds up close and personal.

For more information about Lorikeet Landing, please visit the Santa Barbara Zoological Gardens official website:

This Lorikeet was determined to sit on my head, while others looked on...

Another Lorikeet decided to check out the camera.

Lorikeets are inquisitive birds.

This Lorikeet was fascinated with the camera and wanted a taste.

A beak.... or a foot?
 Then, CHOMP on the baseball cap!

After providing more nectar, this Lorikeet settled down for a drink.
