I have recently read, for the first time since acquiring an interest in
birds, the poem "Bell Birds" by Henry Kendall.


I was struck by description in the last two lines:-


"And straightway the hues of their feathers unfolden

The green and the purple, the blue and the golden."


It sounds as if he is describing a Rainbow Lorikeet rather than a Bell
