Red-collared Lorikeet

This is a closeup of a male Red Collar. Note the long legs and the hooded over crouch which the Red Collars adopt when being inquisitive.
None of our other lories can make this crouch position.
The dark indigo-blue feathers on the lower unside and back are very distinctive giving the birds a very regal appearance.
