Gang- gang Cockatoo (Callocephalon fimbriatum)

During the summer are found in the forests of mountain and areas with understory of shrubs dense. In Winter they will move to more dry and low altitudes, more open forests. They can often be seen along the roads and in parks and gardens in urban areas. They require high hollow trees for nest.

Reproduction:

Forman couples monogamous. The female chooses a hole in the right tree and both sexes prepare the nest for egg-laying. They line the sides of the hole with sawdust and chewing dust. Both sexes incubate the eggs and care for the young. Parents feed their young for four to six weeks after hatching. Feather.

Family groups are commonly seen feeding together during the breeding season.. In some cases, nurseries will be formed’ where have several couples nested together, their young perch together in the same tree, While their parents seek for food.

Food:

With feed mainly seeds trees and shrubs, native and introduced, with a preference for the eucalyptus, beards and thorns. They also eat berries, fruit, dried fruits, insects and their larvae.

They are mainly arboreal, they perch on the ground only to drink and forage among the fallen fruits or cones.

They feed in flocks of up 60 birds out of breeding season. Feed in pairs or small family groups during the breeding season.

They are able to use exotic plants as food in the urban areas.

Distribution:

Size distribution (reproduction / resident): 333.000 km2

They are endemic to the South-East of Australia. They are widespread in the East of New South Wales, from the Central slopes and plateaus to the South Coast, along the northeastern regions of Victoria to Seymour, with some records in the East of Melbourne, mornington peninsula and Southwest Gippsland.
Have also been introduced in the Kangaroo Island to the South of Australia.

The Orange-cheeked Parrot (Pyrilia barrabandi) measured, approximately, 25 cm., has the head and throat black, except for the bright colored area amarillento-naranja that goes from the base of the bill up to the lower cheek well behind the eyes.

Upperparts green, lesser coverts, yellow-orange; edge front of the wing red; primary coverts blue-black; greater coverts bluish green; other coverts, green. Primary, dark blue at the base and in outerweb, If not black; underwing-coverts, bright red, flight feather opaque green. Upper zone of the chest dorado, its bottom and belly, bright blue green, the thighs with orange-yellow feathers. Tail green with blue tip, with yellow bases to the innerwebs of outer feathers.

Bill grey; brown the irises; legs grey.

Both sexes are similar.

The immature has the head Brown golden colour with yellowish brown in cheeks inferiores. Younger birds also has less yellow in the bend of wing, some green feathers in the underwing-coverts and yellow on the tips of the primaries.

Description 2 subspecies:

  • Pyrilia barrabandi aurantiigena

    (Gyldenstolpe, 1951) – Lesser coverts, curve of the wing and the thighs intense Orange instead of yellow-orange.

  • Pyrilia barrabandi barrabandi

    (Kuhl, 1820) – Nominal.

Habitat:

They inhabit mainly in lowland forests, apparently less frequently in forests and marshes. They are distributed at the edge of forests and partially disturbed forest, occasionally in small groves in deforested areas. Observed in altitudes of 150-300 metres in Venezuela and 500 meters in the southeast of Colombia. Seen individually, in pairs and in small groups of up to 10 individuals (sometimes more in banks of land rich in minerals). Are activated more early, In the morning, than other parrots and will rest later.

Reproduction:

There is no information about the nesting, but that suggests the registration of immature birds in February and March breeding season It can be between the months of September/October until the end of year.

Food:

Observed taking seeds or fruits of Ficus sphenophylla, Pourouma, Pseudolmedia, Mimosa, Pithecellobium and Heisteria and possibly larvae of the gall wasps. Usually, they feed in the canopy of the trees, or just below them; less frequently in low branches. Regularly visit areas with mineral-rich soil in the company of other species of parrots.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution(reproduction / resident): 3.470.000 km2

This is a kind of basin of the Western Amazon and the Alto Orinoco. Its length extends from the southeast of Colombia, from the Caquetá Western and bass inirida river, Guainia, until Venezuela in amazon and the Center and South of Bolívar and in Brazil in the upper part of the Amazon to the West, from the rivers Negro and Madeira through the rivers Juruá and Purus and to the South towards Mato Grosso, through the East of Ecuador and East of Peru and to the Northwest of Bolivia, in hand me.

They are generally considered rare throughout its distribution area, Although they are fairly common in the Northwest of Bolivia and many in the sandy Woods of bass Inirida River, to the southeast of Colombia. Its population has fallen locally due to deforestation, Although large tracts of primary forest remain in all range States. Live in several areas protected.

Distribution 2 subspecies:

  • Pyrilia barrabandi aurantiigena

    (Gyldenstolpe, 1951) – Is located in the East of Ecuador and to the East of Peru, where is this in the Manu National Park. In the North of Bolivia is it described as frequent to numerous. The extension also comes to Brazil: is limited by the Amazon in the North and Rio Madeira from the East (pit et to the., 1997).

  • Pyrilia barrabandi barrabandi

    (Kuhl, 1820) – Nominal.

Status


• Current category of the Red List of the UICN: Almost threatened.

• Population trend: Stable.

Justification of the population

The size of the world population It has not been quantified, but this species is described as “Rare” (Stotz et to the., 1996).

Justification of trend

It is suspected that this species has lost 12.1-15% of habitat within its distribution over three generations (21 years) based on a model of Amazon deforestation (Soares-Filho et to the., 2006, Bird et to the., 2011). Given the susceptibility of the species to the fragmentation and degradation of forest and potentially your hunting and/or trapping, It is suspected that its population will decrease at a rate close to the 30% during three generations.

Threats

The main threat This species is the acceleration of the deforestation on amazon basin with large tracts of land used for livestock and soybean production; It is highly susceptible to degradation and fragmentation due to its dependence of primary forests (Soares-Filho et to the. 2006, Bird et to the. 2011, A. Lees in litt. 2011). It can also be vulnerable to the hunt (A. Lees in litt. 2011). The changes proposed by the Forest code of Brazil reduce the percentage of land that a private owner is legally required to maintain as forest and include an amnesty for owners who deforested before July 2008 (who would later be acquitted of the need to reforest illegally cleared land) (Bird et to the. 2011).

In the North of its distribution area, the Galah frequent mountain forests, While much further South, most tend to live in the temperate forests of the lowlands.
During the summer season, It is more common in high altitude forested areas., staying mainly in small cool and shady ravines, always near a river.

In Winter, He moved to arid forests in more moderate altitudes. At this time of the year, also visit the parks and urban gardens.

The Galah It is a bird of open areas, always avoiding the dense forests.

During the nesting season they live in pairs or in small family groups, but the rest of the year, gather in large flocks where food resources are important. Sometimes can gather up to 1.000 birds in the pastures where they feed.

They are sentinels responsible to give the alarm in case of danger.
The power stations are separated by many miles of the rest areas.
In the evening devoted to drinking and perform aerial stunts before joining the residence. Occasionally it can be active and noisy at night.

Reproduction:

In the North, the reproduction has place between February and June.

During the courtship, the male Struts before his partner making bows, shaking his head, producing low notes and showing a repertoire of stunts.

Most of the time, the nest is a natural cavity in a eucalyptus, between 2 and 20 meters above the ground.
The cacatúa Galah You strum the bark of the trunk around the hole which is the entrance of the nest. This practice is sometimes so excessive that they cause the death of the tree. Cliffs can also be used as a place of nesting.

The same couples usually are mate during all their life and are loyal to the same nesting sites for several consecutive years.

The spawning includes 2-6 eggs. The female lays an egg every one or two days and the incubation period is about 25 days. Both parents incubate at the same time, and they provide assistance to young people. They feed their young every 3 hours, sounding his beak to regurgitate the food. The young remain in the nest during 7 u 8 weeks.

While they are able to fly quickly when they come out of the nest, their survival rate is small. The first days after the flight, they return to the nest for the night. Shortly after, large nurseries are formed in which the parents continue to feed their young.

From time to time, the Galah It has a second litter in a season.

Food:

Consume a wide variety of plants, such as oats or wheat seed or the other many herbaceous plants. In addition to that, They also eat insects and their larvae, berries, outbreaks, flowers and seeds of eucalyptus.

They feed almost exclusively on Earth.

Distribution:

Size distribution (reproduction / resident): 14400000 km2

endemic to Australia where it occupies the entire continent. Most of its population lives in the south-east of New Welsh of the South and in the State of Victoria. In other places, is less abundant.

Although it has a beneficial action stopping the spread of some weeds, the Galah have a considerable potential of destruction and is considered a pest in most of Australia.

Crops, especially cereals, they suffer great losses each year. They often cause the destruction of the trees where they nest or establish their residences. The world population It is estimated in more than 5 millions of individuals and the number is constantly growing.

This remarkable species not is protected in all the regions and can be killed if it causes too much agricultural loss.

"Galah" in captivity:

It´s very common in poultry around the world, for being one of the easiest cockatoos both to raise and to care for and for being highly demanded as a pet both for its physical appearance and for its more manageable character than that of other cockatoos. Her offspring should take into account the different subspecies, Therefore we will avoid possible hybridization between them.

Son parrots extroverts, friendly, playful and affectionate. However, they are still cacatuidos, They therefore require more attention than other psittacine species to be happy animals. Its speaking ability is fairly high within the group of cockatoos, with males that better mimic. It is considered that it might also noisy, especially if you are bored or if it has been poorly educated or poorly maid, so you will have to always buy weaned and well socialized specimens. When they are young and still take porridge his voice is very unpleasant.

They possess a behavior that is similar to the of the small Cockatiel. Males are more talkers and possess a strong character. The females., on the other hand, they are silent and less dominant. They are most appropriate, Therefore, to be adopted as pets.

The males they may become aggressive in mating season.

They have a high tendency to obesity, thing very significantly decreases their hope and quality of life, by what control seriously its diet, providing low number of fats and allowing to do much exercise.

Its life expectancy formerly was around the 15-18 years, probably due to a bad diet popular ignorance of your requirements. Today there is talk of animals up to 40 years of life.

If we opt for a cockatoo for the home, a pink may be the best alternative: less demanding than her sisters, slightly less noisy and, If we chose a female, We have the gentleness and docility secured.

Its price market round the 1.000 €.

It is suspected that the population is in decline due to the continuous habitat destruction.

"Speckle-faced Parrot" in captivity:

This species is virtually nonexistent in poultry farming. There is only a small collection, private property in the United States. The Fundación Loro Parque in Tenerife, Spain, It has some copies.
Most of the Speckle-faced Parrot imported to United States they were the victim of aspergillosis – probably caused by the stress suffered during the import process.

In captivity They were observed as the to intelligent species, inquisitive and sometimes shy and nervous. Will get used to their caregiver over time. You can interact with a person and jealously attacking others. Prone to obesity.

The immature they are identical to the female. The frontal band is bright orange-red, the irises light brown.

Description 2 subspecies

  • Cacatua leadbeateri leadbeateri

    (Vigors, 1831) – Nominal.


  • Cacatua leadbeateri mollis

    (Mathews, 1912) – Both similar to the kind adults nominal, but with the crest darker red, with little or no yellow. White Peak.

Behavior:

The couple is the basic social unit, but are maintained contact with other couples nonreproductive through the establishment of groups.

Out of it breeding season, There are mainly small bands consisting of 10 to 50 birds. Major gatherings occur only during periods of drought or when food sources are abundant. In this case, There may be a few hundred individuals, among them, small Galah.

Dormitories they are occupied exclusively outside the breeding season and the birds leave early at dawn.

The Pink cockatoo they forage in trees and on the ground. But, This species is more arboreal that the Galah wave Little corella.

When moving on the ground, He walks slowly to avoid the tall grass.

In the Flock, a bird play always the role of Sentinel. It adopts a very careful attitude, it partially roughcast its crest and regularly pauses during which is very upright inspecting the surroundings.

During the mid-day heat, it finds shelter in the foliage of the trees.. During the summer, rest period is longer.

The paired birds they are always near each other. During periods of intense heat, This bird visit water points, even during the day. At sunset, they return to your bedroom.

Habitat:

Video – "Pink cockatoo" (Cacatua leadbeateri)

Cockatoo leadbeateri _ Inkakakadu`s in Aktion

Its population is distributed by a variety of forest habitats in arid or semi-arid areas.
The species is closely related to the areas of “Mallee“.

Found particularly in afforestation of cypress and eucalyptus, in mixed plots of eucalyptus and Casuarinas or near cliffs.
Its presence in a place is largely also to the existence of a water fountain.
On the other hand, shows a very weak attachment to the fragmented habitats that is no long.

Reproduction:

The nesting season running from August to December. Cockatoos return to their traditional nesting sites.

The cavity for the nest receives improvements: the entrance is enlarged and covered with a layer of fresh chips placed at the bottom of the nest. The nests they are almost always far from one another, at a distance of 2 km.

The spawning is between 2 and 5 eggs being deposited between 2 and 3 days. The incubation It made both parents, begins after the deposit of the third egg and lasts between 23 and 24 days.

The chicks they remain at the bottom of the cavity during 57 days and are fed by the male and the female indistinctly. The family stays near the nest until the last hatchling leaves the nest., they will then join other family groups in the place where food resources are appropriate.

On rare occasions, the Pink cockatoo is forced to eject a couple of Galah He started to lay eggs in their nest, but it can also happen that this form of parasitism is a success. In this case, the partner of the Pink cockatoo takes care of eggs and young after hatching. When are born, the young of the species Eolophus roseicapilla, they behave exactly like their hosts, ignoring the difference in origin.

Food:

With feed seed, herbs, cereals and often of melons (Cucumber myiocarpus). Also consume fresh local figs, pine cones, eucalyptus seeds, bulbs, dried fruits, estate, insects and larvae.

During and after your meal, These birds biting branches and pieces of bark, causing a shower of timber crushed at the foot of the trees.

During periods of intense heat, increase the frequency of his visits to water points.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 2,88 million km2

endemic to Australia. Its main strongholds are in the southwest of Queensland where is quite extended and South of Australia, where is locally common.

In other parts of the continent are very rare and scarce, going back to the vicinity of the Northern Territory and carrying out raids in Western Australia.

Distribution 2 subspecies:

  • Cacatua leadbeateri leadbeateri

    (Vigors, 1831) – Nominal.


  • Cacatua leadbeateri mollis

    (Mathews, 1912) – Interior West and centre of Australia, towards the East, up to the eyre peninsula and the basin of the Lake Eyre, South of Australia.

Conservation:

Least concern (Red list 2006).

• Listed as vulnerable by NSW national parks and wildlife.

Threatened by the law of conservation of species (2005).

Its distribution is very unequal, but only in the Centre - this actually is and South-East where they have widespread. In other parts of Australia, This species is declining due to the thinning of the habitat and its marketing as bird cage.

Competition with the Galah's disability for nesting cavities may be a crucial problem in the future if this species continues to grow. The world population of the Pink cockatoo It is estimated in a little less than 20 000 birds. It is classified as near threatened.

"Pink cockatoo" in captivity:

It is a frequently held in captive animal in your Australia natal, but it is less known in other countries like ours. Its price in the market is very high, especially that of males, being one of the most expensive white cockatoos.

Very noisy, with a great personality, playful and very active. It is very destructive, We must therefore provide toys and wood to gnaw, or otherwise you will satisfy with house furniture and other elements. Inactive animals, bored or stressed tend to yell a lot.

Its life expectancy round between the 40 and 60 years of life.

    Cliff Parakeet

    Content

    Description:

    Cliff Parakeet

    26-28 cm.. length and a weight between 120 and 140 g..
    The Cliff Parakeet (Myiopsitta luchsi) It has a medium size and is mainly green; the front of the crown, lower face and the chest, They are whitish, becoming bright yellow on the lower chest and the belly; the primaries and tail (medium-sized long), They are bright metallic blue.
    Similar Monk Parakeet has less extensive white color crown, pale yellow instead of bright yellow in the belly and the pale gray chest It has a scaling effect that give centers feathers dark.

    Bill color horn.

    The immature They are similar to adults but with forecrown gray tinged with green.


    Taxonomic note:

        This species was described in 1868 by Finsch as Bolborhynchus luchsi, with specimens from Bolivia. Later, the species was transferred to the genus Myiopsitta and the name Myiopsitta luchsi It was used apparently to 1918 by Cory. From 1943, Bond & de Schauensee and they treat it as a subspecies of monachus (Myiopsitta monachus luchsi), approach that has been followed by all modern authors, but Necklace (1997) finally he considers that the morphological characters and their way of nesting are sufficient to raise again species level.

    Habitat:

    Video – "Cliff Parakeet" (Myiopsitta luchsi)

    It shares the same habitat with another endemic parrot, the Red-fronted Macaw (Ara rubrogenys), although both species do not compete because they feed on different plants.

    They found in dry woodland or open fields including fields with trees gallery woods, isolated groups of trees, Palm trees, forests, savannah and scrubland thorny cactus. It is also found in cultivated areas. Visitors from some urban areas. Until 3000 m.

    Reproduction:

    The breeding season occurs between December and March in crevices in cliffs, constructing a bulky nest branches. Unlike Monk Parakeet (Myiopsitta monachus), the Cliff Parakeet does not nest commonly, but often the nests are placed immediately adjacent to each other. The female is in charge of making this nest, as well as its maintenance.
    Couples are for life. The laying is of 5 to 8 eggs per clutch, and incubation lasts a few 26 days. At six weeks old chicks can now leave their nest.

    Food:

    It feeds on seeds of various fruits, including those of fruits cactus Neocardenasia herzogiana and seeds of the Acacia furcatispina; It is also known to feed on cultivated corn.

    Distribution:

    Size of its range (breeding/resident): 148.000 km2

    Restricted to xerophytic vegetation, near cliffs in intermountain valleys of eastern Andes of Bolivia, from the southeast of Peace, South of Cochabamba and West Santa Cruz, to the North of Chuquisaca and possibly other areas.

    Its range is very similar to the Red-fronted Macaw (Ara rubrogenys).

    Conservation:

    State of conservation ⓘ


    Status Minor Concern ⓘ (UICN)ⓘ

    • Current category of the Red List of the UICN: Least concern.

    • Population trend: Unknown.

    Justification of the population

    The size of the population has not been estimated, but the species has been described as “quite common” (pit et to the., 1997) and “possibly quite rare” (Juniper and Parr 1998).

    Justification of trend

    Population trends are difficult to determine due to uncertainty about the extent and severity of threats to the species..
    However, like many parrots, They face the traffic of wildlife and wild captivity. Also they suffer direct and immediate consequences of the destruction of their habitat by deforestation and the advance of the agricultural frontier.

    Conservation Actions Underway

    The species is listed on Appendix II of CITES.

    "Cliff Parakeet" in captivity:

    Quite common. Very sociable, but shy with the human being.
    It is able to vocalize or imitate words, although this quality is far from possessing the capabilities of some genera of the same family.

    ARGENTINE PARROT: Myiopsitta monachus (www.riomoros.com)

    The Monk Parakeet is, mainly, in dry wooded areas or fields open with trees, such as gallery forest, isolated thickets, palm groves, forests, linens and areas with thorny thickets with Cactus, also in land cultivation and in urban areas with trees, mainly below 1.000 m.

    They tend to be observed in pairs or flocks of 30-50 individuals; with much larger gatherings out of breeding season. Rest communally, Sometimes the nests, While you are not playing.

    Note:

      There are reports of transmission lines damaged by birds while nesting. In general, in the area in which have been introduced these birds, the impacts are associated mainly to the behaviors of nesting. This species of birds build large, bulky nests in communications and transmission towers, and distribution poles. In the towers of transmission represent simply a problem of maintenance and does not affect the communications, but in electrical installations can cause blackouts and fires since the nests can create electrical circuits. This problem is intensified in the rainy season and humid climates.. The nests of these birds can cause significant damage to the facilities power including a decrease in electrical reliability, damage to equipment and loss in income due to power outages caused by nests, an increase in maintenance and operating costs associated with removing nests and repairing damaged structures as well as public safety issues (ISC 2011).

    Reproduction:

    It's the only one, between the parrots, It builds, usually, his nest with twigs (commonly from Celtis shrubs) in branches of tree (sometimes in telephone poles, etc.). Sometimes build nests alone (especially in those areas more dry), Although they are usually communal (until 100 nests, usually around 10) combined to form large structures cluttered of several meters of width, with inputs from the side or by under. Each nest It is built with remains of chewed branches. The nests are sometimes used by them Spot-winged Falconet (Spiziapteryx circumcincta) and other birds, to nest and rest. One nest can get to to weigh 50 kilos and be formed by more than 20.000 remained.

    The breeding season, in your area natural's distribution, is between October-December. The clutch generally 4-6 eggs, Although according to some sources, the laying You can understand between 1-11 eggs.

    Food:

    Its diet includes a wide range of seeds wild and cultivated, wild fruits, as well as various plant material including grass seeds and grains, stems of cactus, estate vegetables and fruits cultivated, sometimes also insects and their larvae. Feeds, both in trees as in the soil, sometimes with other species including pigeons and birds of the genus Molothrus.

    Distribution:

    Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 2720000 km2

    The Monk Parakeet lives in the lowlands of the South of South America, to the East of the Andes front Bolivia to Rawson Department (Chubut) in Argentina.

    Observed in the East and North of Bolivia in the southeast of Peace, to the south, in Cochabamba, West of Santa Cruz, North of Chuquisaca and possibly in other areas (for example, Tarija), Paraguay and South of Brazil, in the South and West of Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso from the South and two-thirds of the southwest of Rio Grande do Sul, in all the Uruguay and in the Argentina, to the South of Rio Negro and probably to the North of Chubut.

    Usually common and abundant in Uruguay and Rio Grande do Sul (although it does not play there). It is the most common parrot in much of its range and largely local expansion is due to the plantations of Euralyptus in areas without trees, partial deforestation in other areas, the Elimination of predators and the expansion of crops.

    Pursued in several areas, Although the overall effect on its population is apparently slight.

    Wild populations established in many towns outside of the range, including Puerto Rico, Florida, New York City (where there are fears it could become a major agricultural pest) and several cities more than them EE.UU. There have also been populations of the Monk Parakeet in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), berlin (Germany), Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain (including the Islas Canarias) and several places over the Mediterranean.

    Is a trade in these birds, both local, as international, with large numbers of this species in captivity.
