Rainbow Lorikeet (Olive-Headed) - Nashville Zoo

Rainbow Lorikeet (Olive-Headed) - Nashville Zoo

The Lorikeet Landing at the Nashville Zoo makes for an interactive animal exhibit. Zoo visitors get to walk among the animals, and for a dollar you can purchase a cup of nectar. Or for free, on a hot day they'll land on your shoulder and lick the sweat off your face (if they suspect you're tasty). Another one tried to eat the buttons off my camera.

The Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) comes in a few different subspecies. Some like this one are mostly green with olive and yellow while others are green, yellow, red and blue.

If you like zoo animals, or are a fan of the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, I invite you to check out my Nashville Zoo website gallery:
