The friendly Rainbow Lorikeet at Lowry Park Zoo has been shown here before, along with the rainbow we saw on our trip through South Carolina several years ago.
This rainbow is much brighter and it’s a double rainbow. I enjoy seeing rainbows because they are a reminder of God’s promise to never totally flood the earth. There is no need today to build another Ark to save righteous people and the many animals and birds.
“And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.” (Genesis 9:12-15 NKJV)
Here is another bird with Rainbow in its name. The Rainbow-bearded Thornbill (Chalcostigma herrani). Michael Woodruff took this photo, but was not real close to it.
Look at this one! Wow! This is a closeup of the Rainbow-bearded Thornbill.
The Rainbow-bearded Thornbill (Chalcostigma herrani) is a species of hummingbird in the family Trochilidae. It is found in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical high-altitude grassland.
