Habitat:

Its usual habitat are dense shrubs and trees, Palm trees, handles, coconut and banana plantations.

They make daily trips from the forest into the coastal strips to feed in coconut palms.

They live in pairs or in small groups outside the breeding season. They are very active and difficult to see in dense vegetation; the easiest way to see them is in flight, they are easy to distinguish by their bright red plumage. Their flight is fast with a characteristic wings hum. They are not shy and view them up close, are especially when eating.

Reproduction:

There are no data about its reproduction in the wild.

Food:

The Stephen's Lorikeet is omnivore, consumes nectar, pollen and fruits of a wide variety of plants. The flowers of the plants Scaevola sericea and Timonius polygamus They provide the main sources of nectar. Arthropods are part of the diet, including lepidopteran larvae found in the sporangia fern Phymatosorus

Distribution:

Stephen distribution of Lori

The Stephen's Lorikeet is limited to Henderson island in the Pitcairn Islands, a small island uninhabited and surrounded of coral limestone cliffs, in the South-Central area of the Pacific Ocean.

The Pitcairn Islands, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno There are four volcanic islands in the South Pacific Ocean. These islands are a British overseas territory (formerly a British colony), the last one left in the Pacific.

In 1987, the total population It was estimated between 720 and 1.820 specimens.

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Vulnerable

• Population trend: Stable

This species may prove to be the only member of its genus whose habitat and population size have been little affected by adverse changes in their environment. However, is qualified as vulnerable, Since it is only on a small island.

He seems to have adapted to the presence of the single introduced predator, Pacific rat (Rattus exulans). In August of 2011, a rat eradication operation was carried out in the Henderson island to eradicate R. exulans of the island. However, the accidental introduction of a more aggressive predator, as other species Rattus, It could be devastating. Diseases such as malaria avian and smallpox are another potential threat. The introduction of exotic species of plants could have serious consequences for native vegetation and, Therefore, for this species.

Rat eradication could save seabirds on Henderson Island

Averted a potentially serious threat in 1983 When an American millionaire sought to make a home in the Henderson island. The request was rejected by the Government of the United Kingdom. Henderson is now a world heritage site.

In captivity:

Currently there are no known to any Stephen's Lorikeet in captivity. VULNERABLE.

Due to its endangered status, 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.

  • Sound of the Swift Parrot.
[audio:HTTPS://www.mascotarios.org/wp-content/themes/imageless_gray_beauty/sonidos/Periquito Migrador.mp3]
Habitat and behavior:

To the Swift Parrot It is usually seen in small groups of up 30 birds, sometimes in larger flocks (hundreds of birds) around the abundant food sources. There has also been some extraordinary reports in the enumeration of the flocks of more of 1.000 birds.

Are migratory birds. Are reproduced in Tasmania and then move to Australia continental, in autumn, for the non-reproductive season. Most of the population spends the winter in Victoria and New South Wales, before returning to Tasmania in spring. Usually they are gregarious in raising.

The playback area It is always within the 8 km from the coast, largely restricted to an area of less of 500 km² along the Western seaboard between Santa Helena and the Lune River, including offshore islands, as Mary Island and Bruny island.

The higher densities They occur between the After Bernier and Orford and Wellington Ridge about Hobart. A smaller breeding population is located in the North of Tasmania between Launceston and Smithton.

Reproduction:

Reproductive success is strongly related to the intensity and scope of the flowering of the Eucalyptus globulus (Tasmanian Blue Gum). In years of bad bloom, It seems that there is little breeding.

The breeding season It is mid-September to late January. Birds begin to return to Tasmania from your area of wintering on the continent at the beginning of August. Most of the population comes in mid-September. Unpaired birds upon arrival to Tasmania they can not start breeding until November after finding colleagues.

The De l'Tmño Nidada is three to five eggs. The female makes the incubation. in cautiverior incubation lasts about 25 days. Young people will fly in around 6 weeks. The presence of juveniles, recently fledged at the end of January and early February suggests double broods may occur. Second broods are dependent on the availability of food.

A recent study has shown that the nests of the Swift Parrot they are often found in close proximity together. Nest trees may be to only 10-15 m from, and can support up to four active nests each.

Food:

The Swift Parrot It feeds mainly on nectar, mainly of eucalyptus, but also feeds on insects Psyllids and lerps, seeds and fruits.

It is a tree Harvester, forages mainly in the eucalyptus, but from time to time low to the ground to feed on seeds, fallen flowers, fruit and Lerp. During the breeding season, the nectar from the flowers of the Eucalyptus globulus (Tasmanian Blue Gum) is the main source of food.

Sometimes they voraciously consume nectar in areas very accessible and this makes them reluctant to fly making them vulnerable to attack by cats, especially when forage among low foliage. His agility and alertness in flight can also be affected by the consumption of large quantities of nectar, possibly increasing the risk of collisions with artificial or hard-to-see objects.

Distribution:

Tamaño del área de distribución (reproducción/residente): 21.500 km2

The Swift Parrot, as its name suggests, migrates through the Bass Strait, between Tasmania and the Australian continent. Comes to Tasmania in September and returned to the southeast of Australia between March and April.

You can get to be as far north as the South-East of Queensland and get up to Adelaide from the West, Although the most recent sightings are restricted to the southeastern part of the State.

Conservation:

They estimated that the current population probably contains about 2.000 mature individuals and is declining.

The population of this species is suspected to be decreasing in line with the loss and degradation of habitat.
The gliding of the sugar they are the main predators of the broods of the Swift Parrot on the island of Tasmania, being the cause of the 85% of deaths, but they are not present on the Islands Bruny and Maria

• Current IUCN Red list category: Danger

• Population trend: Decreasing

The logging of a particular species is also responsible for the decline of population, eucalyptus, which constitute the 90% your diet.

– The Swift Parrot is classified as a species in danger of extinction in the law of conservation of biodiversity and protection of the environment of 1999 of Australia.

– The Migratory Perico It is classified as threatened by law of warranty of the flora and fauna of Victoria (1988). According to this law, a State action for the recovery and future management of this species must be. In addition the Migrator parakeet is classified as endangered on the list of advisory on threatened vertebrate fauna of Victoria of 2007.

In captivity:

There are no populations in captivity, they are being handled or propagated actively by reintroducing. However, the Swift Parrot is easily propagated in captivity, and many of them are housed in private collections.

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:

Tamaño del área de distribución (reproducción/residente): 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.

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.

    (Linnaeus, 1758) – Nominal.

  • Eos bornea cyanonotha

    (Vieillot, 1818) – The Red of his plumage is much more dark almost brown.

Habitat:

They are mostly primary forests, in the wooded areas during regeneration, Forest Hills, coconut plantations, in abandoned gardens and mangroves.

They are mainly in coastal areas, What does not climb up to 900 m in the island of Ceram and up 1.800 m in the of Buru.

Throughout its area, the Red Lory are fairly common, However, some populations are more dispersed around the villages, since they are very cautious towards humans.

Behavior:

The Red Lory they live in pairs or in small groups, but sometimes you can observe large flocks of 50 individuals.

They are birds noisy and quite easy to observe, since often flying above the canopy attracted by the flowers red of the tree of coral (Erythrina).

They have a fast and direct flight and when moving, make your buzz due to its quick flapping.

In the Kai Islands, their movements are common: Every day, they cross the arm of sea that separates the different islands flying rapidly and at high altitude.

During the hours of rest at noon, the Red Lory they spend most of their time smoothing feathers in the shade of a tree. Probably, This practice is designed to strengthen marital ties. Parties that enjoy priority are the head and neck; as you can not reach these areas with its beak, you will always need your partner collaboration. The “patient” that is subject to this preferential treatment seems to express a deep sense of satisfaction.

Reproduction:

The couples begin to look for the location of the nest between the months of August and September. It is located high in a big tree.
In mid-December some young leaving the nest have observed.

As in all loris, the nesting period is very long and hard of 7 to 9 weeks.

In captivity, the Red Lory puts 1 or 2 litters per year. Each spawning has usually 2 white eggs that are incubated for a period ranging from 24 to 26 days.

Food:

In their natural habitat, the Red Lory feed of nectar, pollen, fruits and insects of fashion casual.
Your food › seem to be them flowers of the trees of the species Eugenia and Erythrina.

All the Loris they have a language that is especially suited, with a brush tip made up of elongated papillae. This feature allows birds to collect pollen from flowers and compress in a way suitable for swallowing. They play an important role in the pollination of flowering plants and trees.

Distribution:

Tamaño del área de distribución (reproducción/residente): 57.900 km2

The Red Lory they have a very restricted distribution area. They live South of the Moluccan Islands, halfway between Sulawesi and the western end of New Guinea.

Distribution 2 subspecies:
Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Least concern

• Population trend: Decreasing

This species has a very large range, and therefore not approaching the thresholds for Vulnerable According to the criterion of size range.

The population is suspected of being in decline due to unsustainable levels of exploitation.

The species has undergone intense trade from 1981, When it began trading in Appendix II. 99.834 specimens captured in the nature have been recorded in the international trade, Although none from 2000 (UNEP-WCMC trade database, January 2005 CITES).

In captivity:

This lori is considered one of the most widespread within poultry. It's an interesting bird, robust and easy of play, ideal for a start in the world of the loris. It also has a very attractive red color; It playful and is easy for tame.

It is a great conversationalist. Some have entire sentences in their vocabulary. Unfortunately, his voice is sometimes very strong, with a high sharp squeal. The majority are docile, even at maturity. They can be prolific players and are fairly easy to find as hand reared pets.

The excess of protein in the diet can lead to gout, a type of arthritis that crystals are deposited in the joints. It may be a bit uncomfortable due to the liquid diet.

Today, in view of its decline, them find in pairs or in small groups. Large gatherings have become extremely rare or virtually non-existent.

In the Karakelong island were seen, However, on two occasions, more groups of 400 birds.

The Red-and-blue Lory they are birds noisy, which makes them quite easy to observe.

Reproduction:

The species nests in holes in tall trees, most belonging to the class canarium family Burseraceae, and the breeding period main seems to be from May to June, Although it is suspected that nesting may include other months.

We find nests, both in the forests and cultivated areas. The spawning usually includes 2 eggs which are incubated for approximately 25 or 26 days. There is no any other information in the natural environment.

Food:

Although they also consume some insect larvae, the Red-and-blue Lory they are mostly vegetarian. They feed on coconut plantations, in the fig trees and trees of the genus canarium It produces edible nuts.

Distribution:

Tamaño del área de distribución (reproducción/residente): 1,000 km2

The Red-and-blue Lory is confined to the Talaud Islands (almost exclusively in Karakelang) front North of Sulawesi, Indonesia

Description 3 subspecies
Conservation:

• Current red list category of the UICN: In danger.

• Population trend: Decreasing.

This species has a very small range (It is known only in some places), and it is declining due to habitat loss. It has been a downhill fast in the population, largely as a result of their capture for trade, and this is expected to increase in the future. Therefore, qualified as In danger.

Although it was previously abundant, the species has decreased and the population in KarakelongIt was estimated in 8,230-21,400 birds in 1999 (Riley 2003). The subspecies of the nominal of the Sangihe Islands, is likely that has been extinguished.

The invasion and the slash agricultural are driving the loss of forests, aggravated by the threat of illegal trade in the species, contribute to the acceleration in the decrease of the population.

In 1999, the investigation concluded that you the 1.000 and 2.000 birds were being captured in Karakelang each year, the 80% (illegally) for the markets of birds of the Philippines.

Ongoing conservation actions:

From 1995, the project “Action Sampiri” He has been working for the conservation of biodiversity in Sangihe and Talaud, in the implementation of awareness-raising programmes of field work and the conservation and development of ideas for the future use of the land.

Efforts have been made to promote the local support of the species at Talaud, their last bastion.

It has been reported that the poaching and the trade of this species have decreased drastically after the confiscation of assets by Ranger of the forest Department in 2005 (RT Prayudhi in litt., 2008).

The bird is part of the European Association of Zoos, the program Aquaria completo European Endangered [species] and Parrot Taxon Advisory Group (Wilkinson 2000), where is criando in captivity (Sweeney, 1998).

In captivity:

It is currently very rare in captivity.

Due to its status in danger of extinction, 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.

The the Tanimbar cockatoo It is a species of cockatoo endemic forests Yamdena, Larat and Selaru, all the islands of the Tanimbar Islands of Indonesia. This species has been introduced in the Kai Islands, Indonesia, Puerto Rico and Mexico.

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Near-threatened.

• Population trend: Decreasing.

In the Decade of 1970, Japanese loggers ravaged the Islands. Many birds were stunned and disoriented and were captured for pet trade. Although many died from stress during transport, There is still some hope after this ecological disaster, as many cockatoos got played on programs captive breeding. Therefore, There are now more specimens in captivity than in the wild.

This species has a range very small, but its population is severely fragmented or restricted to a few places. Despite suffering from the pressure of his capture, seems to have maintained a large population. However, the degradation of the habitat, trapping and continuous persecution is likely to be causing a moderate reduction of the population. Therefore it is classified as Near-threatened.

There is a conservation plan in endemic parrots Tanimbar Islands, Indonesia, funded by LORO PARQUE FOUNDATION

In captivity:

You can show a fearful beginning, but you quickly get used to their caregiver, becoming a cockatoo very sweet, playful, sometimes inquisitive and very active. Enjoy being observed, being the center of the world, like all cockatoos. His cry is not nice, but it forgives this little cockatoo everything quickly since his antics and bad manners will surprise us and make us laugh.

Has the continuing need to fly so you need a large space.
