Red-collared Lorikeets pass under the radar unless you live in the north of Australia including the Kimberley Region of WA. The very common Rainbow Lorikeet from the east, south and Capital Cities of Australia is far more easily recognised. The eucalyptus is also a stunning feature of that region of Australia. The name Eucalyptus phoenicea is derived from the orange/red flower filaments similar to the mythical Arabian bird known as Phoenix which is described as having brilliant scarlet coloured feathers. I found the flowers to be more orange than scarlet.
