Rainbows after storm
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
RECOVERY: Eight-week-old rainbow lorikeets Slim, Chance, and Laurence are on track for a full recovery thanks to the care of a Wilvos Wildlife Volunteer at Yandina after they were found on the ground and displaced from their nest and mother after a wild storm rolled through Coolum.
