|Red-collared Lorikeet Trichoglossus rubritorquis
(aka Rainbow Lorikeet Trichoglossus haematodus rubritorquis)
|Mary River, Northern Territory, Australia
The Red-collared Lorikeet is distributed in the north of Australia. See the distribution map at Birdlife International.
It differs from Rainbow Lorikeet T. moluccanus in having an orange rather than pale green hind collar, a blue rather than green nape and a black rather than blue belly.
|Many authorities lump Red-collared Lorikeet with Coconut Lorikeet T. haematodus, Biak Lorikeet T. rosenbergii and Rainbow Lorikeet T. moluccanus but all are treated as distinct species by the HBW and Birdlife International Checklist.|
