    The male parakeet is a veritable rainbow of colors.

    The male parakeet is veritable rainbow of colors.

    Shouldn't this sentence be 'The male parakeet is veritable rainbow colors', without 'of'.

    Thank you in advance!

    The male parakeet is veritable rainbow of colors.

    Shouldn't this sentence be 'The male parakeet is veritable rainbow colors', without 'of'?
    The "of" is required but the indefinite article is missing before "veritable". "Rainbow" is a noun in that sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
