Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet

Trichoglossus forsteni Bonaparte, 1850

The Sunset Lorikeet (Trichoglossus forsteni), also known as the Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet or Forsten's Lorikeet, is a species of parrot that is endemic to the Indonesian islands of Bali, Lombok Sumbawa, Tanahjampea (between Sulawesi and Flores), and Kalaotoa (between Sulawesi and Flores). It has often been considered a subspecies of the Rainbow Lorikeet, but following a review in 1997, it is increasingly treated as a separate species. Source: Wikipedia
