  • Sound of the Marigold Lorikeet (1).

(1) Some species are under extreme pressure because of traps and harassment. Therefore, open availability of high-quality recordings of these species may further worsen problems, this being the reason why downloading these recordings is off. In conclusion, recorders themselves are free to share these files on xeno-canto, but they will have to approve access to these recordings.

We do not take this action lightly, and we wish it were not necessary, but we are convinced that the negative impacts of offering easy access to these recordings outweigh the benefits. To access these recordings, You can contact directly with the recorder.

Description 3 subspecies:
  • Trichoglossus capistratus capistratus

    (Bechstein, 1811) – Nominal.

  • Trichoglossus capistratus flavotectus

    (Hellmayr, 1914) – Head green with purple / blue streaks on forecrown up to the cheeks; variability of yellow to deep orange in chest; neck wide and yellow; abdomen dark green to green / black; underwing-coverts yellow with orange markings variables.

  • Trichoglossus capistratus fortis

    (Hartert, 1898) – Head black / brown with purple / blue streaks on forecrown up to the cheeks; lores , throat, line up back of the eyes and occiput, green; chest bright yellow with orange but not barred / red marks; abdomen dark green, with occasional shades blue / black; underwing-coverts yellow.

Habitat Lori flanged:

The Marigold Lorikeet 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.

It is more common in lowlands, but it is up to altitudes of 2400 m. Wide variety of areas including settlements, forests, coconut plantations, Savanna, eucalyptus forests and mangroves, including dry forest Roti.

Reproduction Lori flanged:

Total of 21 nests found in Sumba between late August and early October 1992, all cavities in large trees (principalmente deciduous).

Food Lori flanged:

Few specific dietary data, but presumably similar to Trichoglossus haematodus and it is known to take nectar and pollen from native trees, as well as insects and figs.

Distribution Lori flanged:

Extensión de la distribución (cría/residente): 171.000 km2

The Marigold Lorikeet It is a species of parrot endemic to the islands of Southeast Asia Sumba, Roti, Wetar and Blend (Indonesia) and Timor (Indonesia and East Timor).

Distribution 3 subspecies:

Conservation Lori flanged:

1. Current category Red List UICN: Least concern.

2. The population trend: Decreasing.

3. Population size : —.

Justification of the red list category

Although this species may have a restricted range, It not believed to approach the thresholds Vulnerable under the criterion 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 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 common in Timor (pit et to the. 1997).

Justification trend

They 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 captured in international trade (UNEP-WCMC CITES Trade Database, January 2005).
