Ian Hackworthy's advice is on the money for me if the bird is up in a tree and 
part of a group it is unlikely to be PCD. In four years of dealing with all 
manner of PCD infected psittacines for work and fourteen years of field 
ornithology I have never seen a Rainbow with PCD that flew.

The dietary angle is interesting in the nectivorous lorikeets but I would not 
rule out a colour mutation as a few of these have been seen over the years.

The Rainbow Lroikeet is the single most common bird taken by WIRES members. Ciao
