Okay so i saw this bird and i’m not looking to get one, but it was just really beautiful to me and the way it was acting has just kept it on my mind.
I don’t know all the different bird kinds and species but i’m pretty sure someone on here will know what bird this is?

The angle makes it very hard to tell; I can't see the beak shape/color. Do you have any other photos?

Purple-Crowned Lorikeet, I think!

Where did you see this bird? We have so many little parrots that a general area might help as many small parrots from WA are not common in Vic for example.

The beak just does not look quite the right shape to me for it to be a lorikeet- it could be but I am wondering if it might be some kind of grass parrot.

Beak seems to large for that, I think the pic may just be an odd angle :)

Yeah maybe. The colouring is really off but then again people purposely breed for mutations and also hybrids :(


Was it in a pet store?
yeah, in a bird store. i was going to ask the owner before i left but i got distracted by other things.

Looks more like a Peach-Crowned Conure to me.
