I'm helping a friend of mine sell her Rainbow Lorikeet. However, she has no idea on the specific type of lorikeet. Could someone check out these pics and give a guess?

Looks like a Swainson's Lorikeet to me... despite the weird belly colour... maybe it'll even out as she gets older?

I agree, definitely a Swainson's, though as Ming-Ming said the belly colour is a little unusual. It could also be a hybrid between different types of rainbows, though the markings are fairly distinguished.

The belly color throws me off. I'd say Swainson x Rainbow cuz the bottom belly on the Swain..... is blue and the bottom belly on the Rain..... is green. So green and blue makes um.............(I'm not good in art. lol)

Here is the pic (first pic btw i think) : Rainbow Lorikeet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Just to add a bit, she's just under a year old.
