Subspecies description
  • Charmosyna placentis intensior

    (Kinnear, 1928) – Greener than the species nominal, including the forecrown. Headphones coverts and patch on the rump duller blue-violet.

  • Charmosyna placentis ornata

    (Mayr, 1940) – Mantle green slightly darker than the species nominal, a patch on rump largest darker blue and crown yellower. The Red throat larger in males.

  • Charmosyna placentis pallidior

    (Rothschild & Hartert, 1905) – As the subspecies subplacens, but with upperparts pale green. Headphones coverts light blue in the male.

  • Charmosyna placentis placentis

    (Temminck, 1835) – Nominal.

  • Charmosyna placentis subplacens

    (Sclater,PL, 1876) – It differs from the species nominal by having green, nonblue the rump.

Habitat:

The Red-flanked Lorikeet It, mainly, a kind of lowlands It found in the humid primary forest, in the forest edge, in Savannah, the secondary high growth, in the monsoon forest, in the swamps of Sagun (when they are in bloom), in the gallery forest, in eucalypts, in the coastal forest and, occasionally, in the mangroves and coconut palms. It is also found in flowering trees in cultivated areas.

Can be Quiet and discreet and, even when feeding active and noisy, It can be difficult to see through thick foliage. They are mostly in pairs, but occasionally in groups 25 or more, looking for food with others Loris with flowers and trees epiphytes or flying through or above the tree tops in small compact and noisy flocks.

Reproduction:

In New Guinea, Several observations of couples investigating arboreal termite mounds They indicate that it is likely that they are preferred for nest. The bases of ferns and moss cultures have also been identified as potential sites nesting. Activity on these sites has been observed between February and October, and found that the specimens found in eastern Papua New Guinea by Diamond in July and August 1965 They were able to play. In the Vit Islandu, Coates He watched a couple with chicks in mid-August and is likely to play occurring during much of the year.

Food:

Feeds of pollen, nectar, flowers and seeds, mainly in the upper canopy.

Distribution and status:

Extension of the distribution (breeding / resident): 2.800.000 km2

originating Indonesia Oriental, New Guinea and the northern Solomon Islands.

They can be observed from the Moluccan Islands and West Papua New, through lowland West Papua New and Papua New Guinea to Bismarck Archipelago and Bougainville.

Although mostly they found in lowlands, there have been up to 1.600 metres above sea level in Komo, in the highlands of southern Papua New Guinea; They are also common in high altitudes (about 1.150 meters to 1.450 m) in the zone of Karimui, East, and they do not seem to be anywhere else in the region. reaches 300 metres in New Britain, above which is replaced by the Red-chinned Lory (Charmosyna rubrigularis). In the North of New Guinea It is replaced by the higher altitude Red-fronted Lorikeet (Charmosyna rubronotata).

Widespread and common to locally abundant. It is believed that the world population is at a level of caresses 500.000 individuals and it is stable. Small numbers in captivity.

Distribution of subspecies

Conservation:

• Current red list category of the UICN: Least concern

• Population trend: Stable.

• Population size : Unknown.

Justification of the red list category

This species has a very extens distribution areato, and therefore does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the criteria 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 locations or severe fragmentation).

The population trend appears to be stable, and therefore the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the criteria of population trend (decrease> 30% in ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for 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 it has been reported that the species is usually common and sometimes abundant (pit et to the. 1997). Some sources estimate the current population of this Lori in about half a million individuals.

Justification trend

They suspected that the population is stable the absence of evidence of decline or substantial threats.

Description 4 subspecies

  • Charmosyna papou papou

    (Scopoli, 1786) The nominal.

  • Charmosyna papou goliathina

    (Rothschild & Hartert, 1911) With sexual dimorphism and two different colors. The normal morph is similar to the subspecies Stellae, but differentiated by the yellow at the tip of the tail (non-fusion Orange to yellow). The coverts of the tail they are longer, in color purple blue, not red as in the stellae. As in the subspecies stellae, This subspecies has melanism, the upperparts is green, and underparts blue-black in their entirety. Head and the mantle, only broken by the blue of the stripes in the nape; Red in the coverts of the back and bottom of the tail. The wings are green. The tail viewed from below it is more greenish-yellow than normal morphology, and streamers they are fused opaque to verdoso-amarillo down Green.

  • Charmosyna papou wahnesi

    (Rothschild, 1906) Similar to the subspecies goliathina, but the Red of the part superior of the chest It is bordered below with a narrow yellow band. Does not have a green-washing in the flanks and abdomen top. The belly Central and tail coverts are red.

  • Charmosyna papou stellae

    (Meyer,AB, 1886) This species has sexual dimorphism and also has a melanism (excess of dark pigmentation). In comparison with the nominal, the black patch has much more extensive of the nape, blue-violet striped; This black patch replaces the two areas of black in the crown and in the nape of the speciesnominal. The streamers of the tail They also differ, merging from green to orange red (instead of green to Orange) and finally to yellow on the tips. The subspecies stellae also lacks of the chest yellow and stripes on the flanks that if you have the Papou, as well as his black patch in the belly that extends to the flanks.

    The females They show a visible patch of yellow on the lower of the back Green-tipped on the longest feathers, and coverts of the tail red (male shows red with blue on the patch of the rump). The Red of the part superior of the chest seems more uniform. In the metamorphosis by melanism the Red is largely replaced by black (see goliathina).

    The young birds with dark and thin stripes on the underparts.

Habitat:

Have been recorded at an approximate height of 1.200 meters above a row of trees and also to the 3.500 m, Although the most common is to see them over the 2.000 meters and rare to see them below the 1.500 m; found by Forshaw in the forest of Nothofagus and Podocarpus to 2.800 m.

A species Active and Agile you are often found in pairs or in small groups. The birds move through the trees with jerky movements, often waving his serpentine tail, However, It can be very discreet between the tops of the trees.

Observed in Scheffleras, often in the company of other species, with the same food taste, as the Yellow-billed Lorikeet (Neopsittacus musschenbroekii). Seen often making passes above the trees or half-height, among the plants through the clear.

Reproduction:

The nesting in nature it is not described, but Pratt He observed an adult tracing the branches above and below a large group of epiphytes , Perhaps in search of a nesting site. A couple in husbandry conditions was also observed at the end of August, and young people have been in nature during October and November. In captivity, the implementation has been two eggs, lasting about three weeks of incubation and the young remain in the nest for about two months.

Food:

Feeds on flowering trees or flowers of the epiphytes, nectar, pollen, fruits and small seeds. Larvae of insects occasionally.

Distribution:

Intervals in the center of New Guinea in Irian Java (Indonesia) and Papua New Guinea, in where are distributed from the southeast of Vogelkop towards the Adelbert range, Huon peninsula and intervals in the Southeast.

Distribution 4 subspecies:

Conservation:

• Current IUCN Red list category: Least concern.

• Population trend: Stable.

The world population It has not been quantified, Although that it is more thought of 500.000 specimens. The species appears to be quite common throughout its area of distribution (pit et to the ., 1997).

The hunting of this species for the use of their feathers as tribal headdresses and capture for the bird trade do not believe today that can affect the size of the population.

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

Lori Dartford in captivity:

Coupled pairs will defend their territory vigorously. Individual birds active and playful; they require a cage as big as possible. It may be a bit uncomfortable due to the liquid diet.

Are rare in captivity.

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)

Nesting and breeding habits not described.

Food:

Feeds of pollen, nectar, flowers and seeds.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 417.000 km2

New Guinea in West Papua New (Indonesia) and Papua New Guinea. The range goes from East of Vogel-kop through Maprik, the lower reaches of the rivers Sepik and Ramu reaching Astrolabe Bay in the East. Also in Salawati in the islands of the West of Papua and in Biak. The Red-fronted Lorikeet It is irregularly distributed throughout its area of distribution, but it can be locally common in some areas. Seems to be less common that the Red-flanked Lorikeet, He replaced at higher altitudes, where the two species overlap.

Description 2 subspecies

Striated Lorikeet
Charmosyna multistriata

Striated Lorikeet

Description

They weigh around 40 to 50 g. and length of 18 cm..

The plumage of the Striated Lorikeet (Charmosyna multistriata) It is predominantly green with yellow stripes on the belly and in the chest.

The throat, the forecrown and sides of the head They are slightly more yellow. The neck and the back of the head They are brown with some orange yellow stripes. The tail is olive green on top and having a tip dark yellow. The bottom of the tail It is greenish yellow with some red feathers around the vent. The most characteristic feature of the Striated Lorikeet is the bill two colors. Upper bill is blue-gray with a touch of red orange, While the bottom is completely reddish-orange. Only one other Lori with a peak of two colors and that is the Musk Lorikeet. The irises It is red and legs They are gray with black nails.

Both sexes are the same color, the male is slightly larger and has a bill longer. They are also a little colored in the head.
The immature They have the same colors as adults, only the bill it is more black and darker stripes.

Habitat:

It inhabits in the mountains and hills and forest edges. Mainly found between 180 and 1.800 m, but they have been at much lower altitude, about 80 m. Found in pairs or in small groups of up 20 birds, sometimes fellowship with the Red-flanked Lorikeet and the Fairy Lorikeet (observed in mid-February in mixed flocks with these species). similar to the behavior Red-flanked Lorikeet, the consorts, but although they have observed flocks Striated Lorikeet fly with the Red-flanked Lorikeet, they usually form discrete individual groups.

Reproduction:

Habits of nesting and breeding unknown.

Food:

Prefer treetops in bloom where it feeds on pollen and nectar, but they may also feed on epiphytes.

Distribution:

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.

Lori Estriado in captivity:

In aviculture the Striated Lorikeet It has become one of the rarest species. These birds have not been imported in large quantities, and many of the birds that survived the journey later died due to infections by fungi and other diseases. Few breeders were able to raise them on a regular basis.

Habitat:

Mainly inhabits in forests moist and in the edge of the forest, but also by forest savanna and established secondary vegetation. It is usually between the 1.000 meters of altitude and the 2.200 m, but in the South and around Port Moresby It is occasionally much closer to sea level, in the forests of lowlands. It forages in couples and small flocks of up to 20 birds in the trees in flower, often in the company of Goldie's Lorikeet and Fairy Lorikeet. Very Active When it feeds and, often difficult to identify due to its size and predominantly green plumage. It is not uncommon, but easily overlooked. and has been found in groups of up to 200 individuals. It has often been seen flying in mixed flocks above the canopy, where can be hardly identified due to its small size.

Reproduction:

Unknown nesting habits and breeding.

Food:

Feeds of nectar and pollen.

Distribution:

Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 290.000 km2
