Red-collared Lorikee

Description Red-collared Lorikeet:

26 cm. long and 103-140 grams.

Red-collared Lorikee

The Red-collared Lorikee (Trichoglossus rubritorquis) they have the head violet / blue with purple / blue streaks on face; throat and sides of the nape blackish; neck orange / red; chest yellow / orange without sweeping; abdomen dark green; the thighs green / yellow until undertail-coverts; upperparts and tail green; underwing-coverts orange; yellow and broadband under the wing . Bill orange / red. Eyes dark orange.
The youth they are similar to adults.

    taxonomy:

Occasionally he treated in Australian literature as a separate species of Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but this is only appropriate review, as here, the whole complex of Rainbow Lorikeet: differs from Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) in his collar Orange Fire vs. pale green; Blue neck vs. green; vs belly black. blue; and of the Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus forsteni) in his collar Orange Fire vs. yellowish green; nape blue vs. red crab; nape blue vs. dark blue or green; larger size.

Species Monotypic.

  • Sound of the Red-collared Lorikee.

Habitat:

There have been no large-scale seasonal movements are common throughout the year in some places.

It's more common in the lowlands, but it is up 2400 meters above sea level. They can be observed in a wide variety of areas including settlements, forests, coconut plantations, Savanna, eucalyptus forests and mangroves. 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.

Reproduction:

very similar reproductive biology to the Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus). May-January season in Northern Territory. The laying Typically two or three eggs.

Food:

Diet very similar to the Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) which feeds on nectar, fruit, flowers and insects, including Pandanus spiralis. It can also be found around artificial feeding stations.

I necked Lori distribution:

Extension of the distribution (breeding / resident): 1.100.000 km2

North Autóctono Australia, which they inhabit the lowlands. Integrated or hybridized with Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) on Queensland Peninsula, Australia, in southwest Cape York.

Red-collared Lorikeet Conservation:

    Justification of the red list category

1. Current category Red List UICN: Least Concern..

2. The population trend: Decreasing.

3. Population size : It is unknown.

This species has a extremely large distribution area, and therefore does not approach the thresholds Vulnerable under the criterion of size range (Extent of Occurrence <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 abundant (pit et to the. 1997).

    Justification trend

It is 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 caught in international trade (UNEP-WCMC CITES Trade Database, January 2005).

In captivity:

In Europe, this species of lori has been largely imported from early last century, and in 1910 it managed to raise in the zoo London (four years later, the first breeding France). Currently it is rare outside Australia. Longevity: 20 years in nature, 15-25 years in captivity.

Rainbow Lorikeet


Rainbow Lorikeet


Description Rainbow Lorikeet:

Of 25-30 cm. length; 70-169 grams and a wingspan of 46 cm..

Rainbow Lorikeet

The plumage of the Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) is very bright. The head is deep blue with a neck greenish-yellow and the rest of the upperparts (wings, back and tail) are deep green. The chest is red with blue-black barring.. The belly is deep green, and the thighs and rump are yellow with deep green barring.. In flight, a yellow wing-bar contrasts clearly with the red underwing-coverts.

There is little to visually distinguish between the sexes; However, for an acute observer, their dimorphism is readily apparent.

The youth has bill black, which gradually brightens to orange in the adults..

The markings of Trichoglossus moluccanus resemble of the Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but with a belly blue and breast with little or no blue-black barring..

taxonomy:

With one exception, the species have been treated so far as a group of subspecies within the extended group Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but they differ from the Trichoglossus haematodus her pale red breast without bars ; its blue belly against green or blackish; its pale blue hood without black edge and its larger size.

The subspecies Trichoglossus moluccanus eyrei (South of Australia) It is included within the species nominal. Small hybrid population of species paired with Musk Lorikeet (Glossopsitta concinna) in SE Southern Australia (Yorke Peninsula).

(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.

Subspecies description:

  • Trichoglossus moluccanus moluccanus

    (Gmelin, 1788) – Nominal.

  • Trichoglossus moluccanus septentrionalis

    (Robinson, 1900) – As the species nominal but with brighter stripes purple / blue in the head and tail shorter.

Habitat:

The Rainbow Lorikeet often they travel together in pairs and occasionally respond to calls to fly like a flock, then they disperse again in pairs. Couples aggressively defend their feeding and nesting against other lstallion arcoiris and other bird species. Not only they scare off smaller birds, as the Noisy Miner (Manorina melanocephala) and the Brush Wattlebird (Anthochaera chrysoptera), but also to larger, as the Australian Magpie (Gymnorhina tibicen).

Reproduction:

In Australia, Reproduction usually takes place during spring (from September to December), but it may vary from one region to another with changes in food availability and climate. Sites nesting They are variable and may include gaps as tall trees eucalyptus, trunks of palm trees or overhanging rocks.

Couples sometimes nest in the same tree with other couples Rainbow Lorikeet or other species of birds. The clutch size is between one and three eggs, which are incubated for about 25 days. Incubation tasks are performed by the female alone.

The Rainbow Lorikeet they are mostly monogamous They matched and remain for long periods, if not for life.

Food:

Nectar and pollen of native trees and shrubs, especially eucalyptus (for example, Eucalyptus gummifera, Eucalyptus maculata).

Rainbow Lorikeet distribution:

Extension of the distribution (breeding / resident): 3,810,000 km2

Endemic East and Southeast Australia (of Cape York to the Eyre Peninsula, South of Australia)

They were recorded for the first time in Perth in 1968 and it is believed that the population came from less than ten birds were deliberately released or had escaped from aviaries.

Since the beginning of the decade 1960, the population has grown exponentially and has spread rapidly throughout 174 km2 metropolitan area. The current population is estimated at 8.400 birds and their range is expanding at a rate of 0,7 km per year.

Rainbow Lorikeet conservation:

1. Current category Red List UICN: Least concern.

2. The population trend: Decreasing.

3. Population size : Unknown.

Justification of the red list category

This species has a extremely large distribution area, and therefore does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the criteria of size range (Extent of Occurrence <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 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 the species is described as abundant in northern Australia and rare Tasmania (pit et to the. 1997).

Justification trend

They suspected that the population is declining due to unsustainable levels of exploitation.

Flores Lorikeet

Description Lori Flores:

25 cm. length and 100-150 g. of weight.

 Flores Lorikeet

The Flores Lorikeet (Trichoglossus weberi) is generally Green; light green / blue stripes on the forecrown and lores, the rest of the head with brighter green stripes; underwing-coverts yellow / green. The chest and the thighs are yellowish or reddish. The bill It is orange-red and irises orange-red. The legs son grises. Smaller size than other species Trichoglossus.

The youth they are similar to adults.

    taxonomy:

Sometimes you think you're closer Olive headed Lorikeet (Trichoglossus euteles). With one exception, so far it has been treated as a subspecies within the complex Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), but differs in its chest rather pale green; abdominal patch medium green; head dark green with streaks of bright green; small size (less than a Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus forsteni) relatively small). Monotypic.

(1) Some species are under extreme pressure because of traps and harassment. The open availability of high-quality recordings of these species may further worsen problems. For this reason, transmission and download of these recordings is off. Recorders are free to share in xeno-edge, but they will have to approve access to these recordings.

Habitat:

It's more common in the lowlands, but it is up 2400 meters above sea level. Wide variety of areas including settlements, forests, coconut plantations, Savanna, eucalyptus forests and mangroves.

It is found 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.

Reproduction:

Birds have been recorded in conditions reproduction in June and is reported reproduction between February and August (White and Bruce 1986, Reeve y Rabenak 2016).

It will nest on the ground in some of the predator-free islands.

Food:

It feeds mainly from nectar, but also feeds on figs, insects and can be found around artificial feeding stations.

Distribution:

Extension of the distribution (breeding / resident): 25.500 km2

The Lori Flores are endemic to the Flores Island, Indonesia, where it is described as common (pit et to the. 1997).

Conservation Lori Flores:

1. Current category Red List UICN: Near-threatened.

2. The population trend: Decreasing.

3. Population size : 10000-19999 individuals.

    Justification of the red list category

It is believed that this species has recently split a moderately small population (approaching 10.000 mature individuals), forming one subpopulation, inferring that is suffering moderately rapid decreases due to the pressure of capture and loss of habitat. Therefore, It has been classified as Near threatened, but more information on population size, trends and threats can lead to a reassessment of their status.

    Justification of the population

It is believed that the population of Flores Lorikeet It is moderately small (namely, approaching 10.000 mature individuals).

    Justification trend

They suspected that the population is declining due to loss of habitat and unsustainable levels of exploitation.

    Threats

The habitat destruction through the combined impacts of firewood collection, commercial logging, timber extraction for construction materials and clearance for agriculture may represent the most relevant threat.

The loss and fragmentation of forests It is already extensive in Flowers, where no semi-permanent forest below 1.000 meters is included within protected areas published in the Official Gazette. These threats are exacerbated by the expansion of human population, with large volumes of timber needed for housing construction, and the fact that the application of the laws by the government is little or no.

Deciduous rain forest is being cut extensively through land grabbing and the establishment of agricultural areas, a factor that is inevitably reducing the range and population of this species. Logging continues in the coastal belt to make way for crops, illegal logging continues in the protected areas.

It is presumed that the capture for trade in wild birds It represents an additional threat, as for other subspecies of the complex (Trichoglossus haemotodus).

Conservation actions and research in progress

Appendix II of the CITES. CMS Appendix II. It has been recorded in the Mbeliling Forest Reserve (Reeve y Rabenak 2016).

Conservation actions and research proposals

1 – Estimate the population and assess population trends and scale of the pressure catch.

2- Conduct a specific study of the species to identify important sites, in order to provide protection.

3- Carry out research on their status and habitat use (with special attention to feeding ecology and fragmentation of forests) so that long-term management of the species facilitate.

4- Monitor trade to investigate whether this represents a significant threat.

5- Initiate campaigns sensitization to get the support of local people in forest protection.

In captivity:

In captivity it is kind enough rare de lori. He was raised for the first time Great Britain, in 1969, in Germany in 1984.

Because of its endangered status, Any suitable specimen can not be released back into their natural habitat (native range) It should preferably be placed in a breeding program well managed to ensure the continued survival of this species.

Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet
Trichoglossus forsteni

Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet


Description:

25 to 30 centimeters length and 100-157 g. of weight.

The distinctive and colorful Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus forsteni) has the head dark blue, neck pale green, chest smooth red, and belly dark blue. The remaining plumage It is a bright pale green, and the bill typically red.

In flight the species shows a flash of bright yellow on the inside of all flight feather, and coverts bright red at the bottom of the wings.

  • Sound of the Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet.

taxonomy:

This taxon is considered a subspecies of Trichoglossus [haematodus, rosenbergii, moluccana, forsteni, capistratus, weberi] (sensu lato) by some authors.

The specific epithet forsteni commemorates the Dutch naturalist Eltio Alegondas Forestry.

Subspecies description
  • Trichoglossus forsteni djampeanus

    (Hartert 1897) – They differ from the species nominal by the fact that their head It is darker and more evidently streaked with bright purple / blue.

  • Trichoglossus forsteni forsteni

    (Bonaparte 1850) – Nominal.

  • Trichoglossus forsteni mitchellii

    (Gray,GR 1859) – Both adults have head black / brown with gray / green streaks in crown up to the cheeks; red / brown in occiput; chest Red with minimal or no Barred; neck yellow green; purple / black belly; smaller.

  • Trichoglossus forsteni stresemanni

    (Meise 1929) – As the species nominal but with paler chest orange / red; green washing occiput; feathers the mantle yellow / orange basis.

Habitat:

The Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet is located in lowlands and lower montane forests, including secondary growth and plantations, tending to be observed at the edges and around perturbed vegetation instead of inside the closed canopy forest (pit et to the. 1997). In Sumbawa the Trichoglossus forsteni It ranges from sea level to 800-1200 meters and up 2150 metres in Lombok (pit et to the. 1997); at least in Sumbawa, the variation in altitudinal range is attributed to the movements in monitoring trees in bloom in a large area (White y Bruce 1986).

Reproduction:

Birds have been reported in breeding conditions in May Sumbawa (White y Bruce 1986). It nests in a deep hole in a large tree (pit et to the. 1997).

Food:

No specific data, but presumably similar to Coconut Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus)

Distribution:

Extension of the distribution (breeding / resident): 101.000 km2

The Scarlet-breasted Lorikeet (incorporating subspecies mitchelli, djampeanus and stresemanni) It is located on the islands of Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Tanahjampea and Kalaotowa, Indonesia.

An assessment of the state of the taxa that make up the species indicates that the species may no longer be present in Bali, It is extinct in Tanahjampea after capture, mainly before 1990, and it is not clear if he persists in kalatom (Eaton et al. 2015). In Lombok the species is still present, with a recent observation of a flock of 18 individuals above 1.500 metres in 2015 (F. Rheindt per Eaton et al. 2015), although given the lack of other records for many decades, it can be assumed that the population is likely to be small. Sumbawa now it may be the stronghold of the species, and it was suggested that the species is “secure(Eaton et al. 2015), and there is a large area of ​​potentially suitable habitat remaining on the island.

Distribution of subspecies

Conservation:

• Current red list category of the UICN: Vulnerable.

• Population trend: Decreasing.

• Population size : 1600-7000 individuals.

Justification of the red list category

It is estimated that this newly divided species has a small population that is experiencing suspected moderately rapid population decline due to the pressure of the traps for wild bird trade. Therefore, is classified as Vulnerable.

Justification of the population

It is estimated that the population size is lower to 10.000 mature individuals, on the basis of an interim evaluation of the places where it is likely that any number is retained species. In addition, it is considered possible that the population supposedly higher in Sumbawa does not exceed 1.000 mature individuals.

Justification trend

It is suspected that the population is experiencing descent moderately fast because of unsustainable levels of exploitation.

Conservation actions and research in progress

Appendix II of the CITES, where they include species that are not necessarily threatened with extinction, but in which trade must be controlled in order to avoid utilization incompatible with their survival. CMS Appendix II (Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals).

Conservation actions and research proposals

– Estimate the population and assess population trends and scale of capture pressure.
– Carry out a specific study of the species to identify important sites, in order to provide protection.
– Conduct research on their status and habitat use (with special attention to food ecology and forest fragmentation).
– Initiate awareness campaigns to enlist the support of local people in protecting forests and preventing illegal trade.

Lives in the forests of MOSS and areas surrounding partially cleared, mainly between 2.100 and 3.800 m, with a limit not below l.600 meters except for some occasionalLori found to 800 m. Normally found at higher altitudes than the Yellow-billed Lorikeet, but there is considerable overlap in lower altitudes to 2.500 m. where the two meet, often feeding in the warm company.

Pretty common and often found in pairs, small groups or groups of up to 30 birds in the trees in flower.

Travel in noisy groups, and it can fly very high above the canopy to and from the feeding areas. Not only feeds in the canopy, but also at low altitude of plants and even at the lowest levels near the ground. Assets and meek.

Reproduction:

Habits of nesting not described, Although it is said that they nest in holes of tall trees and lay two eggs. A male in breeding condition was observed in October.

Food:

It feeds on pollen, nectar, flowers, fruits and seeds, Although he believes that they are less dependent on seeds as part regular your diet than the Yellow-billed Lorikeet.

  • Neopsittacus musschenbroek musschmbrorkii

    (Schlegel, 1871) – The nominal.

  • Neopsittacus greater musschenbroek

    (Neumann, 1924) – Slightly larger than the nominal and paler in upperparts.

Habitat:

It inhabits in montane forests, edges of forests, partially cleared areas of secondary growth, mainly between 1.400 and 2.500 m, even if you are also registered at altitudes as low as 1.100 meters and as high as 3,000 m. Also it is common in disturbed areas or groves of Casuarina or eucalyptus in garden areas.

It seems that they have adapted well to the impacts of the man. But it is absent from the places where the forest has been removed completely over large areas.

Visible and noisy, they are in pairs, small flocks and in larger congregations of up to 50 birds in flowering trees. Over most of New Guinea, This species is replaced at higher altitudes by the smaller Orange-billed Lorikeet, commonly found in company with the latter in the top band of its altitudinal range (except Vogelkop).

Most frequently found in flowering trees, often in the company of other species such as the Papuan Lorikeet, also in the fructification of the Schefflera and feeding is sometimes lower levels even on the weeds at ground level.

Reproduction:

Observed to be moving like a rodent along branches. The laying It is two eggs in a hole in the trunk of a tree. Period unknown but an immature nesting was observed in the West Papua Province in late August and a fledgling in the same area in the middle of November.

Food:

Feeds of pollen, nectar, small fruits and berries. It is also thought that feed on seeds as part regular your diet, while the Orange-billed Lorikeet It is confined to nectar. As other parrots can eat insects and their larvae, deliberately or accidentally.

Distribution:

Size of its range (reproduction / resident): 587.000 km2

New Guinea in Irian Java (Indonesia) and Papua New Guineto. Is distributed from East of Vogelkop up to the Huon peninsula and scattered areas in the Southeast. In Vogelkop, Despite the absence of the Orange-billed Lorikeet, the population of the Yellow-billed Lorikeet is relatively low. A small amount in captivity.

Lori Whiskered in captivity:

The Plum-faced Lorikeet is a bird quiet and at times active. Young birds are susceptible to stress and disease during the acclimatization; they may die suddenly without apparent cause. They become more resistant and less shy after acclimatization. You can be accommodated with members of their own species in a system of colony.

It is very rare in captivity.

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.
