Scarlet Lory

This image depicts another of the parrot species that I bred and raised when I lived in Seattle, and that I researched before my NYC postdoctoral fellowship ended. How I miss my lories!

Third in a series of images of lories by this photographer.

ABSTRACT: Chattering Lory, sometimes known as the Scarlet Lory, Lorius garrulus.

    If ‘Chattering Lory’ defeats ‘Scarlet Lory’ for naming a bird that red, it must be a very noisy bird.

    actually, chattering lories are very good talking birds, and yes, they can produce some rather loud noises, too.
