Diets for Lories and Lorikeets

Join The Parrot Society UK

Veterinary Nurse Joe DeMarchi from Australia has sent us the attached article on the balanced feeding of Lories and Lorikeets - parrots that naturally have evolved to consume a very specialised diet. He takes issue with the comments of S. Moraton in Parrot Diets - Wild & Captive  when he talks about the digestibility of pollen. He presents his 30 years of experience in this subject in a unique and entertaining article, well illustrated with many of his own photographs here, in two parts - Lory Diet Part 1  Lory Diet Part 2
