Also known as lories, lorikeets are an extremely colorful bird found throughout Australia, Papua New Guinea, and southern Asia. Despite their stunning plumage, the unique thing about lorikeets is their unique brush-tipped tongue, which allows them to drink nectar.
Although the terms lorikeet and lory tend to be subjective, the most common distinction between the two is that lorikeets have longer tails, whereas lories have shorter, more blunt tails. While you might think that their plumage causes them to stand out and be more susceptible to predators, it actually allows them to more effectively blend in with the canopy.
