Purple Crowned Lorikeet
Glossopsitta porphyrocephala
These lorikeets are not endangered and are found from Kalbarri across the wheatbelt and western cornerof WA through to the east coast of Victoria.
They are very nomadic and follow the flowering mallee tree and other plants that are heavy in nectar in season. They have been found in their hundreds drunk on the ground in the bush from just eating nectar from the mallee tree that has become alcoholic.
Lorikeets in captivity are usually fed with two kinds of nectar. One in the morning which is a rice flour based nectar and in the evening a honey based nectar.
They also get a high protein egg based dry mix which is available to them all day. Plus apples, pears, oranges, figs, mangos, pomegranates, custard apple and any other sweet fruit available.
