We have decided to carry on our rainforest project for March as well because we like it so much and there is so much to learn.
This week for my Rainforest project we went to Colchester Zoo to learn about the rainbow lorikeets. We got to feed them nectar and find out a few things about them.
This is a few of the things we learnt about them:
They mainly eat fruit, pollen and nectar.
Their tongue has bristles on the end to lap up pollen and nectar.
Adult birds have bright orange beaks, young birds have black beaks.
The birds pair for life and lay between 1 to 3 eggs during breeding season.
