Present Rainbow lorikeets are found in a rainforest. A structural adaptation for the rainbow lorikeet is that they have short, strong legs, flexible hips and have two pairs of split claws on each leg. Rainbow lorikeets have large breast muscles where the wings attach to help them fly. Their feathers allow for insulation and flight. A behavioral adaptation for the rainbow lorikeet is that they like to fly in a flock. This helps protect them from predators. Future In the future, the Rainbow lorikeets habitat will change because of deforestation and climate change, which is causing the temperatures to become hotter. They will adapt by moving closer to water because they are good at flying. Their beaks will become longer and sharper so they can catch fish. They will end up having less feathers to adapt to climate change which will help them keep cool and swim better.
