I actually wish we had rainbow lorikeets down here - but unfortunately that's an invasive species that hasn't taken hold yet.  We have so many other tropical birds that flourish down here though - a half-a-dozen or more types of parakeets, macaws, tropicbirds, etc.

This guy, the painted bunting, is actually a surprisingly north-American bird, common in the summers throughout central US and Mississippi river area, and down south for the winters in TX and FL and the gulf coast.
