In the wild, the rainbow lorikeet feeds mainly on pollen, nectar and fruit. At the Zoo, the birds are offered a variety of foods through-out the day. Their favorite fruit is apples and they also love apple sauce. Nectar is provided in both a liquid and dry form and the birds enjoy both. The majority of their nutrients come from parrot pellets offered as the base of the diet.
New Guinea and several small Indonesian islands
