Rainbow lorikeet on Pink-flowering gum tree

So, I've come back to Australia in my flickr stream after many photos from Russia and New Zealand - back to evergreen country of Queensland.

 

This parrot sits on so called 'Red Flowering Gum' .

It could be Eucalyptus, or may be Corymbia hybrid (cultivar) .

Family Myrtaceae.

Corymbia Cultivars info in ASGAP

 

I am not sure about ID for this tree, and help would be appreciated. It is tree about 10m high, note the flower buds shape (with ribs), and read the comments below.
