Red-collared Lorikee

Description Red-collared Lorikeet:

26 cm. long and 103-140 grams.

Red-collared Lorikee

The Red-collared Lorikee (Trichoglossus rubritorquis) they have the head violet / blue with purple / blue streaks on face; throat and sides of the nape blackish; neck orange / red; chest yellow / orange without sweeping; abdomen dark green; the thighs green / yellow until undertail-coverts; upperparts and tail green; underwing-coverts orange; yellow and broadband under the wing . Bill orange / red. Eyes dark orange.
The youth they are similar to adults.

    taxonomy:

Occasionally he treated in Australian literature as a separate species of Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but this is only appropriate review, as here, the whole complex of Rainbow Lorikeet: differs from Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) in his collar Orange Fire vs. pale green; Blue neck vs. green; vs belly black. blue; and of the Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus forsteni) in his collar Orange Fire vs. yellowish green; nape blue vs. red crab; nape blue vs. dark blue or green; larger size.

Species Monotypic.

  • Sound of the Red-collared Lorikee.

Habitat:

There have been no large-scale seasonal movements are common throughout the year in some places.

It's more common in the lowlands, but it is up 2400 meters above sea level. They can be observed in a wide variety of areas including settlements, forests, coconut plantations, Savanna, eucalyptus forests and mangroves. They are in mixed flocks with other parrots; small and noisy groups. Nomads, since they depend on flowering trees. It perches communally in groups of hundreds of birds.

Reproduction:

very similar reproductive biology to the Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus). May-January season in Northern Territory. The laying Typically two or three eggs.

Food:

Diet very similar to the Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) which feeds on nectar, fruit, flowers and insects, including Pandanus spiralis. It can also be found around artificial feeding stations.

I necked Lori distribution:

Extensión de la distribución (cría/residente): 1.100.000 km2

North Autóctono Australia, which they inhabit the lowlands. Integrated or hybridized with Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) on Queensland Peninsula, Australia, in southwest Cape York.

Red-collared Lorikeet Conservation:

    Justification of the red list category

1. Current category Red List UICN: Least Concern..

2. The population trend: Decreasing.

3. Population size : It is unknown.

This species has a extremely large distribution area, and therefore does not approach the thresholds Vulnerable under the criterion of size range (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a decreasing area size or fluctuating distribution, extension / habitat quality, or size of the population and a small number of places or severe fragmentation).

While the trend of the population seems to be decreasing, It not believed to be declining fast enough to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under criterion population trend (decrease of more than 30% in ten years or three generations).

The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds Vulnerable under the criterion of population size (<10.000 mature individuals with an estimated> 10% continuous decline in ten years or three generations, or a specific population structure). For these reasons, the species is evaluated as Least concern.

    Justification of the population

Global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as abundant (pit et to the. 1997).

    Justification trend

It is suspected that the population is declining due to unsustainable levels of exploitation.

    Threats

The species has been the subject of a intense trade: from 1981, When it was included in the Appendix II of the CITES, they have been 100.388 individuals caught in international trade (UNEP-WCMC CITES Trade Database, January 2005).

In captivity:

In Europe, this species of lori has been largely imported from early last century, and in 1910 it managed to raise in the zoo London (four years later, the first breeding France). Currently it is rare outside Australia. Longevity: 20 years in nature, 15-25 years in captivity.

Rainbow Lorikeet


Rainbow Lorikeet


Description Rainbow Lorikeet:

Of 25-30 cm. length; 70-169 grams and a wingspan of 46 cm..

Rainbow Lorikeet

The plumage of the Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) is very bright. The head is deep blue with a neck greenish-yellow and the rest of the upperparts (wings, back and tail) are deep green. The chest is red with blue-black barring.. The belly is deep green, and the thighs and rump are yellow with deep green barring.. In flight, a yellow wing-bar contrasts clearly with the red underwing-coverts.

There is little to visually distinguish between the sexes; However, for an acute observer, their dimorphism is readily apparent.

The youth has bill black, which gradually brightens to orange in the adults..

The markings of Trichoglossus moluccanus resemble of the Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but with a belly blue and breast with little or no blue-black barring..

taxonomy:

With one exception, the species have been treated so far as a group of subspecies within the extended group Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but they differ from the Trichoglossus haematodus her pale red breast without bars ; its blue belly against green or blackish; its pale blue hood without black edge and its larger size.

The subspecies Trichoglossus moluccanus eyrei (South of Australia) It is included within the species nominal. Small hybrid population of species paired with Musk Lorikeet (Glossopsitta concinna) in SE Southern Australia (Yorke Peninsula).

Subspecies description:

  • Trichoglossus moluccanus moluccanus

    (Gmelin, 1788) – Nominal.

  • Trichoglossus moluccanus septentrionalis

    (Robinson, 1900) – As the species nominal but with brighter stripes purple / blue in the head and tail shorter.

Habitat:

The Rainbow Lorikeet often they travel together in pairs and occasionally respond to calls to fly like a flock, then they disperse again in pairs. Couples aggressively defend their feeding and nesting against other lstallion arcoiris and other bird species. Not only they scare off smaller birds, as the Noisy Miner (Manorina melanocephala) and the Brush Wattlebird (Anthochaera chrysoptera), but also to larger, as the Australian Magpie (Gymnorhina tibicen).

Reproduction:

In Australia, Reproduction usually takes place during spring (from September to December), but it may vary from one region to another with changes in food availability and climate. Sites nesting They are variable and may include gaps as tall trees eucalyptus, trunks of palm trees or overhanging rocks.

Couples sometimes nest in the same tree with other couples Rainbow Lorikeet or other species of birds. The clutch size is between one and three eggs, which are incubated for about 25 days. Incubation tasks are performed by the female alone.

The Rainbow Lorikeet they are mostly monogamous They matched and remain for long periods, if not for life.

Food:

Nectar and pollen of native trees and shrubs, especially eucalyptus (for example, Eucalyptus gummifera, Eucalyptus maculata).

Rainbow Lorikeet distribution:

Extensión de la distribución (cría/residente): 3,810,000 km2

Endemic East and Southeast Australia (of Cape York to the Eyre Peninsula, South of Australia)

They were recorded for the first time in Perth in 1968 and it is believed that the population came from less than ten birds were deliberately released or had escaped from aviaries.

Since the beginning of the decade 1960, the population has grown exponentially and has spread rapidly throughout 174 km2 metropolitan area. The current population is estimated at 8.400 birds and their range is expanding at a rate of 0,7 km per year.

Description Lori Flores:

25 cm. length and 100-150 g. of weight.

 Flores Lorikeet

The Flores Lorikeet (Trichoglossus weberi) is generally Green; light green / blue stripes on the forecrown and lores, the rest of the head with brighter green stripes; underwing-coverts yellow / green. The chest and the thighs are yellowish or reddish. The bill It is orange-red and irises orange-red. The legs son grises. Smaller size than other species Trichoglossus.

The youth they are similar to adults.

    taxonomy:

Sometimes you think you're closer Olive headed Lorikeet (Trichoglossus euteles). With one exception, so far it has been treated as a subspecies within the complex Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but differs in its chest rather pale green; abdominal patch medium green; head dark green with streaks of bright green; small size (less than a Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus forsteni) relatively small). Monotypic.

It is found in mixed flocks with other parrots; small and noisy groups. Nomads, since they depend on flowering trees. It perches communally in groups of hundreds of birds.

Reproduction:

Birds have been recorded in conditions reproduction in June and is reported reproduction between February and August (White and Bruce 1986, Reeve y Rabenak 2016).

It will nest on the ground in some of the predator-free islands.

Food:

It feeds mainly from nectar, but also feeds on figs, insects and can be found around artificial feeding stations.

Distribution:

Extensión de la distribución (cría/residente): 25.500 km2

The Lori Flores are endemic to the Flores Island, Indonesia, where it is described as common (pit et to the. 1997).

Conservation Lori Flores:

1. Current category Red List UICN: Near-threatened.

2. The population trend: Decreasing.

3. Population size : 10000-19999 individuals.

    Justification of the red list category

It is believed that this species has recently split a moderately small population (approaching 10.000 mature individuals), forming one subpopulation, inferring that is suffering moderately rapid decreases due to the pressure of capture and loss of habitat. Therefore, It has been classified as Near threatened, but more information on population size, trends and threats can lead to a reassessment of their status.

    Justification of the population

It is believed that the population of Flores Lorikeet It is moderately small (namely, approaching 10.000 mature individuals).

    Justification trend

They suspected that the population is declining due to loss of habitat and unsustainable levels of exploitation.

    Threats

The habitat destruction through the combined impacts of firewood collection, commercial logging, timber extraction for construction materials and clearance for agriculture may represent the most relevant threat.

The loss and fragmentation of forests It is already extensive in Flowers, where no semi-permanent forest below 1.000 meters is included within protected areas published in the Official Gazette. These threats are exacerbated by the expansion of human population, with large volumes of timber needed for housing construction, and the fact that the application of the laws by the government is little or no.

Deciduous rain forest is being cut extensively through land grabbing and the establishment of agricultural areas, a factor that is inevitably reducing the range and population of this species. Logging continues in the coastal belt to make way for crops, illegal logging continues in the protected areas.

It is presumed that the capture for trade in wild birds It represents an additional threat, as for other subspecies of the complex (Trichoglossus haemotodus).

Conservation actions and research in progress

Appendix II of the CITES. CMS Appendix II. It has been recorded in the Mbeliling Forest Reserve (Reeve y Rabenak 2016).

Conservation actions and research proposals

1 – Estimate the population and assess population trends and scale of the pressure catch.

2- Conduct a specific study of the species to identify important sites, in order to provide protection.

3- Carry out research on their status and habitat use (with special attention to feeding ecology and fragmentation of forests) so that long-term management of the species facilitate.

4- Monitor trade to investigate whether this represents a significant threat.

5- Initiate campaigns sensitization to get the support of local people in forest protection.

In captivity:

In captivity it is kind enough rare de lori. He was raised for the first time Great Britain, in 1969, in Germany in 1984.

Because of its endangered status, Any suitable specimen can not be released back into their natural habitat (native range) It should preferably be placed in a breeding program well managed to ensure the continued survival of this species.

Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet
Trichoglossus forsteni

Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet


Description:

25 to 30 centimeters length and 100-157 g. of weight.

The distinctive and colorful Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus forsteni) has the head dark blue, neck pale green, chest smooth red, and belly dark blue. The remaining plumage It is a bright pale green, and the bill typically red.

In flight the species shows a flash of bright yellow on the inside of all flight feather, and coverts bright red at the bottom of the wings.

  • Sound of the Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet.

taxonomy:

This taxon is considered a subspecies of Trichoglossus [haematodus, rosenbergii, moluccana, forsteni, capistratus, weberi] (sensu lato) by some authors.

The specific epithet forsteni commemorates the Dutch naturalist Eltio Alegondas Forestry.

Subspecies description
  • Trichoglossus forsteni djampeanus

    (Hartert 1897) – They differ from the species nominal by the fact that their head It is darker and more evidently streaked with bright purple / blue.

  • Trichoglossus forsteni forsteni

    (Bonaparte 1850) – Nominal.

  • Trichoglossus forsteni mitchellii

    (Gray,GR 1859) – Both adults have head black / brown with gray / green streaks in crown up to the cheeks; red / brown in occiput; chest Red with minimal or no Barred; neck yellow green; purple / black belly; smaller.

  • Trichoglossus forsteni stresemanni

    (Meise 1929) – As the species nominal but with paler chest orange / red; green washing occiput; feathers the mantle yellow / orange basis.

Habitat:

The Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet is located in lowlands and lower montane forests, including secondary growth and plantations, tending to be observed at the edges and around perturbed vegetation instead of inside the closed canopy forest (pit et to the. 1997). In Sumbawa the Trichoglossus forsteni It ranges from sea level to 800-1200 meters and up 2150 metres in Lombok (pit et to the. 1997); at least in Sumbawa, the variation in altitudinal range is attributed to the movements in monitoring trees in bloom in a large area (White y Bruce 1986).

Reproduction:

Birds have been reported in breeding conditions in May Sumbawa (White y Bruce 1986). It nests in a deep hole in a large tree (pit et to the. 1997).

Food:

No specific data, but presumably similar to Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus)

Distribution:

Extensión de la distribución (cría/residente): 101.000 km2

The Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (incorporating subspecies mitchelli, djampeanus and stresemanni) It is located on the islands of Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Tanahjampea and Kalaotowa, Indonesia.

An assessment of the state of the taxa that make up the species indicates that the species may no longer be present in Bali, It is extinct in Tanahjampea after capture, mainly before 1990, and it is not clear if he persists in kalatom (Eaton et al. 2015). In Lombok the species is still present, with a recent observation of a flock of 18 individuals above 1.500 metres in 2015 (F. Rheindt per Eaton et al. 2015), although given the lack of other records for many decades, it can be assumed that the population is likely to be small. Sumbawa now it may be the stronghold of the species, and it was suggested that the species is “secure(Eaton et al. 2015), and there is a large area of ​​potentially suitable habitat remaining on the island.

Justification of the red list category

It is estimated that this newly divided species has a small population that is experiencing suspected moderately rapid population decline due to the pressure of the traps for wild bird trade. Therefore, is classified as Vulnerable.

Justification of the population

It is estimated that the population size is lower to 10.000 mature individuals, on the basis of an interim evaluation of the places where it is likely that any number is retained species. In addition, it is considered possible that the population supposedly higher in Sumbawa does not exceed 1.000 mature individuals.

Justification trend

It is suspected that the population is experiencing descent moderately fast because of unsustainable levels of exploitation.

Conservation actions and research in progress

Appendix II of the CITES, where they include species that are not necessarily threatened with extinction, but in which trade must be controlled in order to avoid utilization incompatible with their survival. CMS Appendix II (Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals).

Conservation actions and research proposals

– Estimate the population and assess population trends and scale of capture pressure.
– Carry out a specific study of the species to identify important sites, in order to provide protection.
– Conduct research on their status and habitat use (with special attention to food ecology and forest fragmentation).
– Initiate awareness campaigns to enlist the support of local people in protecting forests and preventing illegal trade.

In captivity:

Rare in captivity. Each captive specimen of this species which is capable of reproducing, It is placed in a well-run program of captive breeding and not be sold as a pet, in order to ensure its long-term survival. However it copies sold from the Loroparque Foundation at a price of around 400 EUR.

In captivity, It appeared in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, for example, in 1896 It was imported by the London Zoo. The first offspring of the world recorded in 1990 on India.

Habitat:

The Red-flanked Lorikeet It, mainly, a kind of lowlands It found in the humid primary forest, in the forest edge, in Savannah, the secondary high growth, in the monsoon forest, in the swamps of Sagun (when they are in bloom), in the gallery forest, in eucalypts, in the coastal forest and, occasionally, in the mangroves and coconut palms. It is also found in flowering trees in cultivated areas.

Can be Quiet and discreet and, even when feeding active and noisy, It can be difficult to see through thick foliage. They are mostly in pairs, but occasionally in groups 25 or more, looking for food with others Loris with flowers and trees epiphytes or flying through or above the tree tops in small compact and noisy flocks.

Reproduction:

In New Guinea, Several observations of couples investigating arboreal termite mounds They indicate that it is likely that they are preferred for nest. The bases of ferns and moss cultures have also been identified as potential sites nesting. Activity on these sites has been observed between February and October, and found that the specimens found in eastern Papua New Guinea by Diamond in July and August 1965 They were able to play. In the Vit Islandu, Coates He watched a couple with chicks in mid-August and is likely to play occurring during much of the year.

Food:

Feeds of pollen, nectar, flowers and seeds, mainly in the upper canopy.

Distribution and status:

Extensión de la distribución (cría/residente): 2.800.000 km2

originating Indonesia Oriental, New Guinea and the northern Solomon Islands.

They can be observed from the Moluccan Islands and West Papua New, through lowland West Papua New and Papua New Guinea to Bismarck Archipelago and Bougainville.

Although mostly they found in lowlands, there have been up to 1.600 metres above sea level in Komo, in the highlands of southern Papua New Guinea; They are also common in high altitudes (about 1.150 meters to 1.450 m) in the zone of Karimui, East, and they do not seem to be anywhere else in the region. reaches 300 metres in New Britain, above which is replaced by the Red-chinned Lory (Charmosyna rubrigularis). In the North of New Guinea It is replaced by the higher altitude Red-fronted Lorikeet (Charmosyna rubronotata).

Widespread and common to locally abundant. It is believed that the world population is at a level of caresses 500.000 individuals and it is stable. Small numbers in captivity.

Distribution of subspecies
Conservation:

• Current red list category of the UICN: Least concern

• Population trend: Stable.

• Population size : Unknown.

Justification of the red list category

This species has a very extens distribution areato, and therefore does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the criteria of size range (Scope of the presence <20.000 km2 combined with a decreasing area size or fluctuating distribution, extension / habitat quality, or size of the population and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation).

The population trend appears to be stable, and therefore the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the criteria of population trend (decrease> 30% in ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the criterion of population size (<10.000 mature individuals with an estimated> 10% continuous decline in ten years or three generations, or a specific population structure). For these reasons, the species is evaluated as Least concern.

Justification of the population

Global population size has not been quantified, but it has been reported that the species is usually common and sometimes abundant (pit et to the. 1997). Some sources estimate the current population of this Lori in about half a million individuals.

Justification trend

They suspected that the population is stable the absence of evidence of decline or substantial threats.

In captivity:

Rare in captivity.

Mindoro Racquet-tail

Mindoro Racquet-tail

Description:

27 cms length.

Mindoro Racquet-tail

The Mindoro Racquet-tail (Prioniturus mindorensis) They are closely related to the Blue-crowned Racquet-tail but it is distinguished by the patch crown in the mindorensis It is blue with a slight violet hue and clearly defined against the forecrown green; the peak is larger and racquets are never as long as adult specimens discurus.

-similar female to female Blue-crowned Racquet-tail, but often with violet traces in the patch crown.

Formerly he considered conspecific (belonging to the same species) with the Blue-crowned Racquet-tail (Prioniturus discurus).

Habitat:

They can be found in moist lowland forests, most recently being observed records, in groups of birds visiting the IBA Siburan.

Reproduction:

No information about their reproductive behavior.

Food:

Surely it feeds their congeners fruits, berries, nuts and seeds.

Distribution:

Extensión de su área de distribución (cría/residente): 12.100 km2

Endemic of the Mindoro Island in Philippines.

Conservation:

Justification of the red list category: Vulnerable.

Population size: 2500-9999 specimens.

The population trend: In decline.

Justification of the red list category

This newly divided species is listed as Vulnerable it is believed to have a small town, which infers that is in decline due to the continuous pressure of capture and loss of habitat.

Justification of the population

The population size of this species has not been formally quantified, but it is estimated preliminarily that has less than 10.000 mature individuals. Therefore, placed in the band 2.500-9.999 mature individuals, which it is supposed equivalent to a total population of 3.750-14.999 individuals, round here 3.500-15.000 approximately. It is presumed that all mature individuals form a single subpopulation.

Justification trend

It is inferred that the population of the species is continuous decrease due to the constant pressure capture and habitat loss (Juniper and Parr 1998).

Threats

Little information is available about threats to this species, but it is believed that the continuous capture for pet trade and the continuous loss of habitat through agricultural expansion, timber harvesting and development are causing a negative population trend.

Conservation actions

Conservation actions underway

No specific conservation actions for this species are known, although suitable habitat is officially protected.

Conservation Actions Proposed

Surveys to quantify the population.
Study the habitat needs of the species.
Assess the level of threat of capture pressure.
Using remote sensing techniques to track the change in land use in Mindoro.
Carry out awareness activities to reduce trapping activities.

In captivity:

Not found in captivity.

Seychelles Black Parrot
Coracopsis barklyi

Seychelles Black Parrot


Description:

35-40 cm. length and 132-153 g. of weight.

The Seychelles Black Parrot (Coracopsis barklyi) They have a pale brown, less black than the plumage Black Parrot (Coracopsis nigra), but gray / blue reflections in the outer layers of the primary feathers; pale brown patches with slight pale striae crown.

The tone becomes slightly paler in uppertail-coverts.

Seychelles Black Parrot

The underparts They are pale grayish brown. We can see some short lines in throat, while the chest and the belly show a diffuse pale obstruction. The tail is pale-grey.
The bill dark gray becomes paler during the breeding season. The eyes are dark brown, surrounded by a naked orbital gray area. Legs and feet are dark gray to bluish gray.

Both sexes are very similar.

Youth colorization:

Immature paler than adults with a yellowish tinge bill and tips of the feathers tail with pale gray.

Taxonomic status:

Formerly a subspecies of Black Parrot (Coracopsis nigra), originating from Madagascar. Parrots Gender Coracopsis only found in the Western Indian Ocean.

Habitat:

The Seychelles Black Parrot (Coracopsis barklyi) inhabits native and mixed woodland in Praslin, (Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013, A. Reuleaux y N. Bunbury a slightly. 2016). It is also found in cultivated areas and residential areas with gardens, habitats that are suitable feed (A. Reuleaux y N. Bunbury a slightly. 2016). They are usually seen alone or in pairs.

Reproduction:

Their main breeding areas They are in a forest dominated by endemic palms coco de mer (Lodoicea maldivica). The tree species nests in cavities primarily in mer coconut dead, but also registered that nests in cavities and other palms living trees broadleaf (Reuleaux et al. 2014to), with reproductive activity October to March (Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013, Reuleaux et al. 2014to). Preferred deep cavities of hollow logs of L. maldivica with a dense cover canopy over the entrance (Reuleaux et al. 2014to). The reproductive activity It fluctuates widely between years (A. Reuleaux y N. Bunbury a slightly. 2016). In a study, the 53% of nests they were successful in 36 nesting attempts, with a 57% incipient year survival (Reuleaux et al. 2014to).

Food:

The Seychelles Black Parrot It feeds on a variety of plant species, most of which are endemic and native (Reuleaux et al. 2014b), mainly from the fruit pulp, seeds and buds, with occasional observations feeding on leaves, flowers, crusts and scale insects (Reuleaux et al. 2014b).

Distribution:

Extensión de su área de distribución (cría/residente): 70 km2

The Seychelles Black Parrot (Coracopsis barklyi) reside in Praslin, with occasional records in Curieuse (to 1 km to the North of Praslin), Seychelles (Reuleaux et al. 2013).

no individual was detected in curious during the specific counts for four days and during extra field work, so it is assumed that there is no resident population there (Reuleaux et al. 2013).

Conservation:

• Current red list category of the UICN: Vulnerable.

• Population trend: Stable.

• Population size : 340-600 individuals.

Justification of the red list category

This newly divided species is listed as Vulnerable because, but it appears to be stable or possibly increasing, their population is still very small, and therefore it is at risk of stochastic events and human impacts.

Justification of the population

Count surveys conducted in Praslin points in 2010 and 2011 They found a density of 0.14-0.24 individuals / ha, as resultadi giving an estimate of the Total population 520-900 individuals (confidence intervals 95%) obtained through distance sampling methodology (Reuleaux et al. 2013). After reviewing recent survey results, Rocamora and Laboudallon (2013) estimated total breeding population less than 200 couples, I am suggesting that there could be less than 400 mature individuals. Based on these data, it is assumed that there 340-600 mature individuals in the population.

Justification trend

They suspected that the population is stable the absence of evidence of any reduction or immediate threat. It is believed that the species has increased at least until the beginning of the century, but it is unclear if it is still increasing (Reuleaux et al. 2013, Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013).

Threats

It is believed that the decline of Seychelles Black Parrot before age 60 It was mainly due to predation by introduced rats and hunting conducted by settlers and farmers (Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013). Other causes of increased mortality include capture as pets and trade, and bycatch when targeting other species.

The most serious current threats for the species include diseases such as disease Beak and feather, continuous nest predation by rats and cats, competition from introduced species of birds for food and nesting sites, Poaching of their primary nesting tree (coco de mer), and habitat destruction caused by fires, with potential threats including persecution, pesticides, bats and kinship networks (Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013, Seychelles Islands Foundation in litt. 2014).

The forest fires They may represent the most serious threat to the species, with records since the beginning of the decade 1980 showing that approximately every 10 years a major fire occurs (The Seychelles Islands Foundation in litt. 2014). The availability of nesting cavities can be a limiting factor in years of very active reproduction, some females occupying suboptimal cavities.

Collection sea ​​coconuts probably reduce the area of ​​palm forest long term.

The presence of the Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) in Mahe, one of which is registered Praslin, increases the risk of disease.

The impacts of introduced species causing nest predation and competition for nesting sites can not be serious enough to limit the population; However, mice are increasing in Praslin.

The crazy ants or zanconas ants (anoplolepis gracilipes) not appear to have impacted the species so far, probably because they use dead palms, where the appropriate cavities Seychelles Black Parrot.

Chicks predation by cats and dogs is probably limited, and post-harvest mortality is not currently a major concern. The persecution of the species by farmers is considered a minor threat.

Other risk factors for the species include their low genetic diversity and unexplained large fluctuations in reproductive activity of one station to another (Seychelles Islands Foundation in litt. 2014).

Conservation actions

Conservation actions underway

The species is protected by law from 1966 (Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013). Endemic palms have been protected from 1991, and the restoration of native palm forest on Praslin and Curieuse is underway. The species is found in the Praslin National Park, created in 1979, and Vallée de Mai It was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983. The Background islas Ferdinand curious y They are administered as nature reserves, but no official protection. Between 1983 and 2005 boxes were provided artificial nesting (Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013, A. Reuleaux y N. Bunbury a slightly. 2016).

In Vallée de Mai there is a firewall around the core breeding, but it is not guaranteed to work in the event of a large fire that can not be contained quickly (The Seychelles Islands Foundation in litt. 2014), However, It has only proved partially effective when a fire destroyed several hectares of breeding habitat high quality 2010 (A. Reuleaux y N. Bunbury a slightly. 2016). Poaching coco de mer nuts it being countered with increased security and a program regeneration, and they have carried out awareness activities to reduce the persecution by farmers. Measures are being taken to eradicate the presence of the Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) and also they are conducting tests for the virus Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease Virus (The Seychelles Islands Foundation in litt. 2014).

In 2009 a national plan of action was drawn up for the species, It is including plans to introduce the species Silhouette, along with captive breeding Frégate North Island there, if you can carry out a proper restoration and habitat management (reviewed by Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013). Other conservation identified for this species include control of introduced, the renovation and improvement of nests, monitoring the population and public awareness campaigns (reviewed by Rocamora and Laboudallon 2013). Analysis by statistical models is provided for 2014, after annual counts have been made for three years without interruption, and conclusions on the trend of the species will be published from 1982 (G. Rocamora in litt. 2014). Repeating the remote sampling survey is scheduled at intervals 5-10 years (A. REuleaux y N. Bunbury a slightly. 2016).

Conservation Actions Proposed

Carry out further surveys to get a more accurate estimate population size and to monitor the demographic trend. Conduct research on the impacts of potential threats. Protect additional areas of native forest of palms. Suitable restore native habitats. Continue awareness activities to eliminate any residual persecution.

In captivity:

This species is protected by law from 1966. No copy of Seychelles Black Parrot It should be kept in captivity, unless it were under a controlled breeding program to bird species reinstate their habitat.
