This bird - the Noisy Friarbird (Philemon corniculatus) - is also very common in my yard and on my grevillea bushes. However, unlike the Rainbow Lorikeet, it is not so photogenic nor does it enjoy having me take its photo. It used to be called the 'Leatherhead' because its head is covered with black skin instead of feathers. Adding to its unusual appearance is an upright knob on its beak.
