Hi Greg,

As there are millions of Rainbow Lorikeets gathering at night time roosts in tree foliage in various parts of eastern Australia at present I would suggest that your bird may have been nesting.

HANZAB states " Breeding pairs do not return to communal roosts while breeding, instead roosting in their nest hollows."

Breeding for NSW is given as June-Jan, young in May.
