The below recent snap shows 3 cold lorikeets, from left Musk, hybrid and Rainbow.  The Rainbow naturally has a wide range of colors on the underparts, including the green fringe on yellow base, a feature sometimes taken to suggest Scaly-breasted ancestry in a hybrid.  Note also the hybrid here in that regard.
