Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

THESE three baby birds are slowly turn­ing into rain­bows af­ter the re­cent storms.

Rain­bow lori­keet or­phans Slim, Chance and Lau­rence are swap­ping their grey first feath­ers for the bright-coloured plumage that give the species their name, be­ing hand raised by WILVOS carer Donna Bren­nan on the Sun­shine Coast af­ter sur­viv­ing the re­cent wild weather. The colours start with the strik­ing blue head feath­ers, Donna said.

Any­one who finds an in­jured or or­phaned an­i­mal can phone the WILVOS 24-hour hot­line on 5441 6200 or visit wilvos.org.au
