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!

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

Profile of a Chattering Lory, Lorius garrulus. Two subspecies are formally recognized and are found on nearby islands in Indonesia.
