Ceylon Lorikeet (Gira Malichcha)

The Ceylon Lorikeet is the smallest member of Sri Lanka’s parrot family. This sparrow sized bird is predominantly green with bright red on the forehead and crown which turns into a golden orange on the nape and hind neck before blending into the green of the mantle. The rump and upper tail coverts are a bright scarlet. The brilliancy of this bird’s plumage is further enhanced by its blue under wing and tail.
