This female (less blue on her forehead) is recovering from a coracoid fracture.

 

This occurs when the bird has had a front on collision, which is common in lorikeets as they fly at great speeds and sometimes low.It’s a really important bone as it connects the sternum to the shoulder joint and opposes the powerful contraction of the major pectoral muscle during the downstroke of the wing.

 

She has been in wildlife care for the last month and is in a small flight aviary to try and improve her flight as at the moment she’s unable to get height in her take off.  She's progressing well with the hope of releasing her back to the wild.
