Beautiful birds, indeed, but as already stated, they are by far THE messiest birds I've ever encountered. Due to their specialized diet (fruits and nectar), their droppings literally shoot out off their little feathered butts. :eek: A good friend of mine breeds lories, and she's finally converted to acrylic enclosures because they are easier to clean, and it keeps the droppings inside instead of on the walls.

They are extremely intelligent and playful, too, and learn to mimic quite easily. :)
