  • Note: Birds observed recently in OBI, Center-North of Moluccas, possibly belong to a new subspecies. (Mittermeier, J.C., Cottee-Jones, H.E.W., PURBA, E.C., Attack, M.., Hesdianti E. & Supriatna, J. (2013)
    A survey of the avifauna of Obi island, North Moluccas, Indonesia. Forktail 29: 128-137.)

Habitat:

The microloro pechirrojo they can be observed in primary and secondary forests on mountain, along the forest margins, and also have been recorded in the Albizia moluccana, in coffee plantations. They are usually between 500 and 3.000 m, but they can be found at lower altitudes. There is a record of a wandering bird observed at the level of the sea.

The species is usually found in pairs or in groups of up to 20 individuals, quickly moving in small groups through the second half of upper canopy. They are most commonly by their sharp calls.

Birds prefer the dead trees and can “Skip” from one branch to another in search of fungi and lichens for food. They also take fruit and flowers.

Unlike other Pygmy parrots, they build their cavities for nesting on the sides of the dead trees, not in termite mounds. Tunnel entrance leads up into the cavity and enter by the back. One of the reported tunnels had 100 x 55 mm. with a coating of wood inside.

Reproduction:

The breeding season, According to sources, is between the months of December and April. The nest It is a hole in a stump or dead tree to an altitude that ranges between 3 and 4 meters above the ground; apparently one of these nests counted with the presence of one male and two females.

Food:

Fungi and lichens, Sometimes they feed on fruit and flowers.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 269.000 km2

The Red-breasted Pygmy-Parrot are distributed by the islands of Buru and Seram, and in the mountain forests along the New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, and three of the Solomon Islands. In New Guinea, are observed in the mountains Tamrau and Parotia of Vogelkop, along the Onin peninsula, and through the central mountain range, including the mountains, Kubor, and coming up to Adelbert, Saruwaged and Owen Stanley ranges in the North and Southeast. There are also in New Britain and New Ireland (Hans Meyer Range) and in Bougainville, Kolombangara and Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands.

Distribution 5 subspecies

    Conservation:

    • Current IUCN Red list category: Least concern

    • Population trend: Stable

    The size of the world population It has not been quantified, probably over the 100,000 specimens. The species is released between common and rare due to deforestation and loss of habitat in this limited range.

    The population suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence of any reduction or substantial threats.

Habitat:

Found in pairs or in small groups on them flowers of coconut and shrub in flower, and groups of up to four birds found with greater frequency in plantations mixed. The species is has adapted to habitats side and their main source of food seems to be the nectar of coconut. A roost of 17 birds is the largest group reported.

Reproduction:

A nest with two eggs is noted in 1985, little more is known of the habits reproductive of this species.

Food:

Their main source of food is the nectar of coconut.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 700 km2

Endemic of the Sangir Islands. Most of the original vegetation in Sangir, It has now been replaced by plantations of coconut and nutmeg, and secondary vegetation of the abandoned gardens. Observations during mid of 1980 It showed that it is quite common in forests of coconut trees, and two pairs were observed in the steep volcanic slopes covered with trees in 1986. In 1995, the species was recorded of all forest habitats on the island from sea level up to around the 900 m (also be meeting around Tahuna). The birds are observed more frequently in fragments of forest and coconut plantations.

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Near threatened

• Population trend: Decreasing

There are few data on recent trends, but not there is evidence of a continuous decrease and given your apparent tolerance to different secondary habitats, the declines in their population may have been insignificant.

The population of the Sangihe Hanging-Parrot It is estimated between 10.000 and 46.000 specimens.

The original forest in Sangihe It has been almost completely replaced by the crop, but the species appears to be tolerant to degraded habitats and cultivated areas and there is no evidence of a continuous decrease. Other potential threats include the widespread settlement of large trees in the Decade of 1980, the escaped parrots-borne disease and the volcanic activity in the future (Riley 2002).

Red-throated Lorikeet
Charmosyna amabilis

Red-throated Lorikeet

Description

18 cm.. length.

The head of the Red-throated Lorikeet (Charmosyna amabilis) is green with lores and chin red. Upperparts green. Wings internal and ends with green feathers flight feather color black. Throat red, bordered below by a narrow yellow collar; rest of the underparts with a yellowish green that upperparts, particularly in the center of belly; the thighs red. The tail above green a little darker than the rump, with yellow ends; undertail yellow. Bill orange; irises yellow; legs orange-red.

Male and female are equal.

Immature generally duller. The the thighs opaque purple. The yellow band throat much weaker than in adults and the red facial and marks throat more restricted.

Habitat:

Move by tropical forests, mainly over the 500 m. Are nomads and fly in pairs or small flocks of 5-8 birds in search of flowering trees, uniting to feed on flowers, nectar and pollen. They prefer to feed in the canopy, and although it is apparently ejected away from the areas of power by the aggressive Collared Lory, Holyoak He found two species feeding on the same tree during his remarks in 1973.

Reproduction:

Breeding and nesting habits unknown.

Food:

They feed actively, to often hung upside down to get to flores.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 37.100 km2

Endemic of the Fiji Islands where it is rare and usually only moves above 500 meters and below 1.000 m. Is distributed between in Viti Levu, Ovalau (where it may now be extinct), Vanua Levu and Taveuni. In 1973 Holyoak found at a Red-throated Lorikeet on a wooded Ridge around 250 metres in Viti Levu, species to which saw or heard on five different days while exploring Taveuni thinking that the species was widespread in the rainy forests at an altitude between 550 and 1,000 m. The species was also recorded in rainforests between 120 meters and 980 feet by Martyn L. Gorman (1975), but it is said that they are rare. These records are among the few documented sightings of this century. The world's population is believed to be of less than 10.000 specimens. Despite its apparent rarity, This species may be overlooked due to their unobtrusive plumage and behavior.

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Danger critic

• Population trend: Decreasing

Threats to the lowlands and hills of the forest is slowly being erased much of Fiji. However, the rarity and assumed decline of this species is probably largely the result of predation by introduced mammals, especially Black Rat (Rattus rattus) , as it is the case with the closely related New Caledonian Lorikeet (Charmosyna diadema).

Increases in course in the logging and the expansion of the road network, especially around the Highlands of Monasavu and Serua in Viti Levu, It is likely that you have caused an increase of the density of these rats (Watling 2000, G. Dutson in litt. 2005). The Indian Brown Mongoose (Herpestes fuscus) introduced, is also present in the areas of distribution of the Red-throated Lorikeet and it can be a threat (V. Masibalavu in litt. 2012).

Agricultural expansion is invading the primary forest in Taveuni. Have a distribution in mountains close to the maximum altitude within its distribution area, It also makes this potentially susceptible species to climate change (BirdLife International).

Is species is protected by the laws of Fiji. In Viti Levu, dwells within the Tomaniivi nature reserve, but this is not large enough to maintain a resident population and, Despite the creation of the extension Wabu proposal to make a reservation of adequate size, This would not provide better protection against rats if the reserve remains unmanaged (D. Watling in litt. 2000)

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident) 170,000 km2

Endemic to the montane forests of the center of West Papua New and Papua New Guinea, South of the cordillera central. The world population It is believed to be of less than 10.000 specimens, but it is probably stable. A small number in captivity.

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Near threatened

• Population trend: Decreasing

Its habitat is locally threatened by logging and clearing for agriculture. Reports of the species in Ok Tedi They show that the population of the Striated Lorikeet It dropped dramatically after the severe drought in 1997-1998 (P. Gregory in litt., 2010).

The species may be threatened by the presence of a large copper and gold open pit mine in Ok Tedi, but the impacts of this mine are currently unknown. It is likely to be tolerant of uneven and degraded forests and although it may have a small population in general, do not believe that it is declining very rapidly.
