  • Sound of the Mindanao Lorikeet.

Habitat:

Found of 1.000 to 2.500 m in the Mount Apo and 1.000 1,700 m in the Mount Malindang.

The Mindanao Lorikeet they prefer mossy forests, but also you can see them along the edge of the forest and in degraded areas.

Generally noisy during the flight, but when they feed on, remain calm. They migrate daily between different altitudes in the morning looking for food in the Highlands and in the evening return to their resting places in the lower areas.

Move higher during the day, in flocks of up to 50 birds, to feed on trees with flowers and shrubs. At sunset, they return to the lower slopes to rest.

Reproduction:

Little is known of the ecology of replica. Probably it breeding is performed between months of March and may.

Captive breeding records indicate that the laying tends to be of two eggs, the incubation of some three weeks and that the young leave the nest between three weeks and a month more afternoon.

Food:

With feeds nectar, flowers, fruits, pollen and insects.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 8.700 km2

Endemic to the mountains of Mindanao (Philippines)

Conservation:

[stextbox id=”alert” float=”true” align =”right” width =”270″]

• Current IUCN Red list category: Near threatened

• Population trend: Decreasing

Its Habitat favorite is relatively unlikely that is affected by human activities in the medium term, but logging and capture should remain concerns.

The world population apparently not been quantified formally, but the species is described as very rare and there are those who think that there are less than 10.000 individuals.

Lori Mindanao in captivity:

Very rare in captivity.

Due to its decreasing trend in terms of its population, any specimen that can not be returned to their natural habitat (natural range) It should be placed preferably in a breeding program well managed to ensure the survival of the species.

Description 2 subspecies

  • Trichoglossus flavoviridis flavoviridis

    (Wallace, 1863) – Nominal. Overall plumage It is olive green. The forecrown and crown yellow. The back of the neck brown. the yellow throat and the chest to abdomen, with the scalloped dark green.

  • Trichoglossus flavoviridis meyeri

    (Walden, 1871) – Shown in upperparts a darker shade of green; the underparts They are less scaly. The back of the top, the occiput and nape are greenish-Brown. The cheeks and throat They are yellow with dark green stripes. This subspecies is much smaller, between 40 and 50 gr.

Habitat:

The Yellow-and-green Lorikeet they are distributed with greater diligence between primary forest and mature secondary forest than their close relatives, the Ornate Lory. However, This does not prevent them from entering the open lands to feed from the ceibos in flower (coral trees).

Throughout its area, these birds are considered fairly common. In Celebes, are common in the mountainous areas where have been supplanted to a large extent to the Ornate Lory. In the Sula Islands, they are common in almost all altitudes.

They live in small flocks of noisy and sometimes mingle with the Ornate Lory When looking for food in the trees in flower at the edge of forests.

These birds are relatively timid and they tend to stay inside the dense forest foliage, where their cryptic plumage makes them practically invisible. When they feel threatened, leave the foliage uttering cries penetrating and powerful. They are easier to fly above the treetops on quick flights or the circulating a flight above the trees, just before landing in the branches more high.

Reproduction:

There is little information reproduction in the natural environment. The only nest we have discovered so far was in a mossy forest, about 2.400 meters above the sea level. It was located high above the ground in a dead tree.

In captivity, the implementation is, usually, two white eggs that incubate for a few parents will be 23 days. As with all the Lori, the reproductive cycle It is particularly long and hard about 65 days.

Food:

The Yellow-and-green Lorikeet is above all vegetarian. Their language is particularly suitable for crop pollen and the nectar from the flowers. It is equipped with long buds that allows you to easily reach their favorite food. They have a predilection for the trees of the genus Euphorbia and Erythrina.

Distribution:

Size of its range (reproduction / resident): 6.300 km2

The Yellow-and-green Lorikeet They are endemic to the islands east of Indonesia. They are exclusively on the Sula Islands (Taliabu, Mangole, Sanana) and especially in the area of Celebes island.

Description 2 subspecies

Conservation:

• IUCN Classification: Least concern.

• No threats today.

The species is not threatened. In Taliabu, It is very common in altitude areas, but it is also quite common in degraded areas bordering the coast. It is estimated one world population above the 100.000 specimens.

Justification of trend

They suspected that the population is stable in absence of evidence of any decline or threatens substantial.

Lori Verdigualdo in captivity:

Pretty common in captivity.

Take it easy, Nice trill. Sensitive to cold temperatures and somewhat susceptible to disease. He will join his caregiver over time although initially shy.

  • Sound of the Olive headed Lorikeet.
[audio:HTTPS://www.mascotarios.org/wp-content/themes/imageless_gray_beauty/sonidos/Lori Humilde.mp3]

Habitat:

Frequent subtropical moist forests, secondary forests and wooded meadows. Adapt quite well to cultivated land and the gardens in cities.

In Timor, they are relatively abundant between 1.000 and 2.300 meters above sea level, apparently, substitute to the Coconut Lorikeet in these heights. Also they can be observed at sea level in the island of Timor. In the rest of the Islands it frequents lowland areas.

The Olive headed Lorikeet they live in small groups. They are especially visible when they are in flight because they emit continuously shouts. On the other hand, when feeding or resting in trees, they are very difficult to observe by its Green plumage mixed with the color of the foliage.

They are birds territorial, able to show great aggressiveness if the limits of its area of influence are violated.

Usually disperse in search of their food, forming large groups when resources are abundant.

Outside the breeding season they form large roving flocks of a hundred or more individuals. Move in flying fast and slightly wavy.

In Timor, during the season, dry, These birds seem to descend below 1.000 meters and are scattered in coastal areas.

Reproduction:

The anidacio seasonn would perhaps be developed between September and October, but this information needs to be confirmed.

In captivity, the Olive headed Lorikeet put 3 white eggs that parents are in charge of incubate for a few 23 days. As in the majority of the Lori, the nesting cycle is particularly long.

Food:

Feed primarily of nectar and fruit. They forage in trees in flower and shrubs.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 38.100 km2

Timor and Lesser Sunda Islands, from the East of Lembata until Nila and Babar.

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Least concern

• Population trend: Stable

The population size This species has not been quantified. Suspected that the population is stable in the absence of evidence of any reduction or substantial threats.

Like most brilliant plumage of parrots, the Olive headed Lorikeet It victim of the trade bird cage or Aviary.

Pohnpei Lorikeet
Trichoglossus rubiginosus

Pohnpei Lorikeet


Description

24 cm.. length and a weight between 70 and 85 gr.

The Pohnpei Lorikeet (Trichoglossus rubiginosus) is unmistakable.

The head and back, dark brown, darker in the head. Scapulars and blankets, are of color Bordeaux dark. The flight feather are blackish in those networks internal and infiltrated with color olivaceous in them vane outer.

The primaries more external are clearly yellow. The bottom of the wings black. The underparts Deep Garnet color, with a black edge in the bottom sides of the edges that draw a bar at the bottom.

The upper part of the tail color is olivaceous, brighter in the vicinity of the tip; lower tail is of color yellow pale. The bill is orange. The irises are yellow-orange, the legs and feet are dark gray.

In the female, the bill seems more yellowish and the irises are greyish white.

In the youth, the feathers They seem sharper.

Habitat:

This species is present on the entire surface of the island, until 600 m. It is distributed by a variety of habitats, such as coconut trees, plane trees, dense tropical forests, plots regenerated, forests and mangroves.

The Pohnpei Lorikeet is a bird especially loud, He throws her screams from the roosts after dark. It is fairly easy to detect, Since it wanders in small flocks of February to December in search of food in trees in flower.

It tends to fly high and travel long distances over the ocean.

When fed into the forests of tall trees, usually favors the average vegetation floor.

As the Ponape island receives a large amount of precipitation (until 7600 mm. per year in some places), the Pohnpei Lorikeet seek refuge under the large leaves.

Reproduction:

The Pohnpei Lorikeet It builds its nest on top of a coconut tree or in any cavity of a tree from the forest.
The spawning usually consists of an only egg.
The nesting season generally goes from December to may.

Food:

Consumes nectar, pollen and fruit. While feeding, It tends to keep its head down to pick up their food in the flowers of coconut and banana.
The nectar of Erythrina and the mango is very appreciated by the Pohnpei Lorikeet.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 350 km2

As its name implies, lori this is endemic of the Ponape island, which is the most populated island of the States federate of Micronesia. Formerly, also lived on the atoll of Namoluk about the island of Truk.

It is possible that range was more extensive than it is today.

Conservation:

– Current IUCN Red list category: Near threatened

– The population trend: Decreasing

This species is listed as near-threatened because it is suspected that their population, which is mostly a subpopulation, It is in decline due to changes in land use. It also has a very small range; However, is unlikely that it is declining, in terms of population, given the adaptability of the species. Neither population is severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations.

Surveys in 1994 They suggested that the species had declined a 74-75% Since the beginning of the eighties, probably indicating a decrease in real (Buden 2000). The current population exceeds the 10.000 specimens (Juniper and Parr 1998, M. Or ’ O'Brien in litt. 2011).

In the news, It is the official bird of the State of Pohnpei and your hunting, capture and export is illegal.

Lori Ponape in captivity:

Is usually not kept out of the Pohnpei island.

  • Sound of the Scaly breasted Lorikeet.
[audio:HTTPS://www.mascotarios.org/wp-content/themes/imageless_gray_beauty/sonidos/Lori Escuamiverde.mp3]

Habitat:

The Scaly breasted Lorikeet they are distributed by many forest habitats, including parks and Gardens located on the outskirts of cities and farmland, where are the flowering trees present.

They usually found in coastal areas and adjacent plateaus.

They have a strong preference for agricultural land and coastal scrubland which are dominated by trees of the genus Banksia.

Also you can see them along the rivers, to the West of the Great dividing range. They can live up to 600 m.

The Scaly breasted Lorikeet they have quite similar patterns to the of the Coconut Lorikeet. It is not rare to find them together in mixed flocks where one of the two species generally surpasses another in number.

Most of the times, the Scaly breasted Lorikeet they live in pairs or in small groups of up to 10 individuals. They are most active at dawn, shortly after the dormitories are scattered.

They usually roam locally. These short trips are motivated by the search for food.

During flowering of trees, large groups may intervene if resources are abundant. The dispersion of groups is immediately after flowering.

In urban districts, are sedentary Since the sources of food are abundant in the gardens during all the year.

They are particularly friends of cultivated fruit, arriving to cause much damage in the orchards.

These birds have a flying fast and direct. When they are in the air they are immediately identifiable by its green head and bright orange red wings bass. When flying over the tops of them trees with rhythms fast, their wings produce a buzzing sound which is easily audible.

Reproduction:

The nesting season comprises of mayo to February in the North of the area of distribution, probably related to the decrease of rainfall.

In the southern part of the State of Victoria It takes place between August and January.

The Scaly breasted Lorikeet They nest in tree cavities, usually at a considerable height from the ground. They cover the bottom of the nest with a layer of sawdust and then lay two or three white eggs, oval in shape.

The incubation lasts a few 25 days. The male spends most of its time near hollow, but it does not seem to participate in the incubation. Both parents feed the chicks until they leave the nest, of 6 to 8 weeks after hatching.

Food:

The Scaly breasted Lorikeet they have a scheme rather similar to the of the Coconut Lorikeet. Both species feed primarily on nectar and pollen from the flowers especially the Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia).

They feed also on flowers, berries, fruit, seeds, small insects and their larvae. Are big lovers of the fruits cultivated. Also entering the fields of sorghum and corn because they crave small immature Milky grains.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 2.310.000 km2

The Scaly breasted Lorikeet being endemic to the Australian continent.

Its area of distribution extends from Bamaga in the extreme north of Queensland the District of Illawarra, on the South coast of New South Wales.

These birds are sedentary and abundant in the North, nomadic and less numerous in the South. They were introduced in the District of Melbourne, in the State of Victoria.

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Least concern

• Population trend: Stable

The population World has not been quantified, but is estimated above 100.000 specimens.

The species is described as common in the center of its area of distribution and more rare toward the areas north and South of their area of distribution.

It is suspected that the population It stable in the absence of evidence of any reduction or substantial threats.

Lori Escuamiverde in captivity:

Rare out of Australia; small number in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Gregarious, playful and loud. A bit messy due to a diet of nectar.
Its life in captivity ranges between 20 and 25 years.

The edges of the breast feathers they are much wider, It has a broad yellow stripe on the neck, ending at the highest point with a red band narrow, their abdomen Violet is blue also has a wide orange stripe inside the flight feather.

The bill is red-orange. The irises They are orange-red and legs grey.

Variation of the nominal (Trichoglossus Haematodus).

Habitat:

They are in a wide range of habitats, including settlements in forests, coconut plantations, savannahs and mangroves.

In their natural habitat, They form small groups noisy that feed on the upper canopy. Often they are seen in mixed flocks with other species of parrots. At night, Community are hundreds of birds.

Are pollinators important species coconut.

Reproduction:

Within its natural range, usually they begin breeding between September and October – although breeding is registered in most months.

The average clutch it consists of 2 to 3 eggs. The female incubated eggs for about 24 to 27 days and the young become independent when they have a 80 days old.

Food:

Its diet natural It consists mainly nectar and pollen, but also it includes fruits like figs, Citrus, papaya and mangoes open fruit bats. They may also feed on moth pupae and insects.

Distribution:

The Biak island in the province of Papua, Indonesia.

Conservation:

The Shawl-collared Lorikeet has a single small population, that can be seen to be decreasing as a result of the loss and degradation of forests, by agriculture and logging subsistence and perhaps also for the capture for trade. Therefore, is qualified as Vulnerable.
