According to Forshaw's Parrots of the World, /T. h. capistratus/ has yellow under wing coverts variably marked with orange, while /T. euteles/ (which Forshaw calls the Perfect Lorikeet) has greenish yellow undersides with a yellow band across the underside of the flight feathers.

Obviously I meant Marigold not Magnolia Lorikeet ...

My excuse is that I have a fever - hopefully not malaria.

Hello Steve,

There you go...we got back from a couple of weeks in Timor-Leste on the 
1st..!!! Haven't written my report yet, but looking forward to comparing notes.
Can't help with the parrots, tho' I saw the Marigold (not Magnolia) in 2004.

Cheers for now,
Peter Madvig
