Musk Lorikeet [Glossopsitta pusilla]

These little guys proved very hard to capture, they are close enough in colouring that they are quickly camoflagued in the flowering gums. The also seem to tag along with flocks of rainbow lorikeets, which are larger and more obvious.

The musk lorikeet apparently can be differentiated from the little lorikeet by the red on its bill (the little lorikeet has a black bill)
