Rainbow Lorrikeets peering over nest.
When lorikeets were first recorded in the wild in Perth no action was taken to remove them. From fewer than 10 escaped or released birds,
the population is now distributed over a large part of the metropolitan area and may have expanded to number over 20,000 birds by 2010. The bird is now a declared pest here.
