My computer isn’t showing me the photos. I get this “We're having some trouble displaying this photo at the moment. Please try again.  but even so, hybrids of lorikeets (rainbow, scaly-breasted and musk lorikeets) are well known. Certainly in captivity, the aviary in Gungahlin has many. Even wild ones, that happens mostly in places where one species is common and the other rare (when you get one bird maybe unable to find a correct match), or they are moving into new areas.

Gee, that’s very heavy lerp infestation Sandra.  Keep an eye out for Regent Honeyeaters and Swift Parrots. Bird possibly an aviary product.
