Wing, Contour & Tail feathers.
These feathesr were naturally molted out by a Rainbow Lorikeet who I rescued and then raised/nursed back to health.
Photographed usng a macro lens to pick up every single delicate detail.
The Rainbow Lorikeet occurs in coastal regions across northern and eastern Australia, with a local population in Perth (Western Australia) and Tasmania, initiated from aviary releases.
In October, BirdLife Australia holds the largest citizen scientist project, the Aussie Backyard Bird Count. In 2016, the rainbow lorikeet topped the national tally as the country’s most common birds.
The data collected assists BirdLife Australia in understanding more about where and what species live where.
