In the late 1960s and early 1970s I would see only the occasional pair of Rainbow Lorikeets at Woolooware, near Cronulla, Sydney, NSW. It was rumoured that Taronga Park Zoo released a number of cockatoos and parrots of species known to be native to the Sydney area. If this is true it may help to explain the increase in Rainbow Lorikeets in the Sydney area if they were also released.
