Conservation Amazona diadema:

State of conservation ⓘ


Endangered Endangered (UICN)ⓘ

• Current category of the Red List of the UICN: In danger of extinction.

• Population trend: Decreasing.

Rationale for the Red List category

    Based on a model of future deforestation on amazon basin and susceptibility to this new species capture, it is suspected that its population will suffer a very fast along three generations descent from 2002, so it is in danger of extinction.

Justification of trend

    This species is expected to lose between 49 and 55% suitable habitat within its distribution throughout three generations (37 years) starting at 2002, based on a model of Amazon deforestation (Soares-Filho et to the). Given its susceptibility to capture, It is suspected that species decline by 50-79% during this time.
Threats

• The main threat to this species is the accelerating deforestation in the Amazon Basin as land is cleared for ranching and soy production, provided by the expansion of the road network, together with his susceptibility to capture (Soares-Filho et to the. 2011).

• The species is assumed to experience some pressure catch, probably mainly for internal trade, since this species is rare in aviculture (Del Hoyo et al ., 1997, pit et to the ., 2016).

• Proposed changes to the Brazilian Forest Code reduce the percentage of land to a private owner is legally obliged to keep as forest (including, critically, a reduction in the width of forest buffers with perennial vapors) and include an amnesty for owners who deforested before July 2008 (That they would later be absolved of the need to reforest illegally vacated land) (Bird et to the., 2011).

Conservation Actions Underway

• No specific conservation actions are known for this species, although part of their habitat is protected.

• It is distributed in the Jau National Park where it is rare or uncommon (Borges et al ., 2001, Borges & Almeida 2011).

Conservation Actions Proposed

• Carry out surveys to estimate the size of the population.

Monitor deforestation rates in the range using remote sensing techniques.

• Study the level of Trapping threat.

• Increase the area of ​​suitable habitat that receives protection effective.

• Boost changes in laws related to deforestation and forest protection.

The Diademed Parrot in captivity:

Rare in aviculture.

Each captive specimen of this species which is capable of reproducing, It is placed in a well managed captive breeding program and not be sold as a pet, in order to ensure its long-term survival.

    Red-collared Lorikee

    Description Red-collared Lorikeet:

    26 cm. in length and 103–140 grams in weight.

    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 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:

    Reproductive biology very similar to that of 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.

      Rationale for the Red List category


    Status

    1. Current red list category of the 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 population size and a small number of places or severe fragmentation).

    While the trend of the population seems to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be rapid enough to approach the Vulnerable thresholds according to the population trend criterion (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 with a specific population structure). For these reasons, the species is assessed 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 calf in France). Currently it is rare outside Australia. Life expectancy: 20 years in nature, 15-25 years in captivity.

    Cuban Macaw

    Description of Cuban Macaw:

    The Cuban Macaw (Ara tricolor) ave a great era, had a length between 45 and 50 centimeters, the “forecrown” It was red and orange and yellow the nape.

    around the eyes had white areas devoid of feathers. Cara, abdomen, chest and the thighs They were also orange and legs and the tip of the bill brown. The upper portion was a brownish red with festooned with feathers in green, while feathers below tail, on top of this and the lower back region they were blue. Also of this color combined with purplish red were the wings.

    The external appearance of both male and the female It was the same. As for the flight, as described, when taking off it opened and exhibited its splendid tail to its full extent in a truly magnificent spectacle.

    Habitat:

    Little is known about the habits Cuban Macaw. Local people reported the Cuban naturalist, born in Germany, Juan Gundlach (1876) What anidaba in the holes of the palm trees and lived in pairs and family groups. He noted that it had a strong vocalization similar to that of Central American macaws. (Gundlach 1893).

    apparently small populations bred in scattered locations.

    Reproduction:

    Little is known about the reproduction of this species, except that they nested in the holes of the palm trees and lived in pairs and family groups.

    Food:

    They ate fruits, Palmas, tree seeds cinnamon (Meliá azedarach), tender shoots and buds (Wiley & Kirwan 2013).

    Olson & Suarez (2008) skull suggest that the tablet back-ventral, in other macaw is an adaptation for a strong muscle attachment, is an indication that this species feeds on palm nuts extremely hard shell, and distribution of birds may have been closely related to the availability of this food source.

    Distribution:

    Distributed in the past by the island of Cuba, and probably the Isle of youth. It is said that there were large populations in the Zapata Swamp to the South of Matanzas. There is no evidence of the historical existence of this guacamayo or another Hispaniola, where it has hinted at the existence of this species (although possibly they were observed on that island, with the last individuals registered in 1820.

    Conservation:

    • Current category of the Red List of the UICN: Extinct.

    • Population trend: extinguished.

    Justification of the Red List of the Category

    This species was known in the island of Cuba, but hunting led to its population to extinction. The last reports of the species date from 1885.

    Its extinction was caused by his hunting as food and the felling of trees for nesting capture young birds and their use as pet (Forshaw and Cooper 1989).

    It is said that the last specimen known to have existed was shot down in La Vega, about the Zapata Swamp in 1864. Then testimonies of sightings occurred up 1885 which were not confirmed.

    "Cuban macaw †" in captivity:

    It is believed that the Cuban Macaw was quite common in Cuba. First he began to increase his capture in order to give them to the Kings of Spain. As the nineteenth century progressed increased human population and this not only cut down the trees and forests deforested, but he also hunted the bird for food – despite the fact that its meat tasted bad – he plundered its nests to take from pets young birds. This is how their habitats were eliminated, until he ended up becoming extinct.

    Norfolk Island Kaka
    Nestor productus †

    Norfolk Island Kaka

    Content

    Description:

    The Norfolk Island Kaka (Nestor productus) was their large with a bill, wings short and wide, and with legs and feet large.

    Norfolk Island Kaka

    I had 38 centimeters long. The top of his head era gris pardusca, while its face varied from yellow to orange, sometimes with a reddish tint. It was said that his Hip It was greenish yellow, and upperparts, including the wings, they were mostly greyish-brown in color, slightly darker than the top of the head, with the bottom of the back and rump orange or dark red and the tail brown. Upper chest It was brown and gray bottom bright yellow, with the belly and sides reddish orange (Forshaw & Cooper 1981, 2002; Greenway 1958).

    Its social structure and dispersion are not registered, but the Norfolk Island Kaka of New Zealand, he watched alone or in small groups of up 10 individuals (Higgins 1999).

    Habitat:

    Habit in the native forest in the Norfolk Island and about Phillip Island (Greenway 1958). The species could be observed both in the canopy of tall trees, and soil, the rocks (Gould, 1865, Greenway 1958).

    Given its endemism in the Norfolk Island, the Norfolk Island Kaka It was presumably sedentary.

    Reproduction:

    Little is known of reproductive cycle of the Norfolk Island Kaka; just put on record of four eggs in tree holes (Gould 1865).

    Food:

    It is known that he fed on nectar Flowers tree white wood (Lagunaria) (Gould 1865). Definitely should be more varied. The captive birds they ate lettuce and the leaves of other vegetables, as well as dairy meals and fruit juice (Gould 1865). Presumably he foraged in both the soil and the canopy (Gould, 1865).

    Distribution:

    Its range was about 15,5 hectares.

    It was endemic to the Norfolk island (in Australia) and nearby Phillip Island, Australia. It became extinct in the wild in mid-century 19 on Norfolk Island, and possibly a little later Phillip Island.

    The species is believed to have had a very limited ability to move between islands., and probably he spent his whole life on the island of his birth (Gould, 1865).
    In the Norfolk Island Kaka occasionally kept in captivity, as the birds were gentle and easy to capture alive (Gould 1865). The species He survived in captivity until after it had become extinct in the wild (Greenway 1958). There are no known captive populations and none has been reintroduced into the wild. The last known living bird was in captivity in London in 1851 (Garnett et to the., 2011).

    No made extensive studies for this species. However, there have been a series of ornithological studies in the Norfolk Island since the species disappeared from the island (p.ej. Bell 1990, Robinson 1988, Schodde et al., 1983, Smithers y Disney 1969), no signs have been found of the species.

    Conservation:

    • Current category of the Red List of the UICN: extinct.

    Rationale for the Red List category

    This species was known in the Norfolk Island, but it was Extinguished to mid 1800. It is believed that the elimination of habitat and hunting have been the main drivers.

    According to reports, was tame and, Therefore, hunted strongly convicts and early settlers and easily trapped as a pet.

    No information is available on the population size before its decline.

    "Norfolk Island Kaka" in captivity:

    They were captured by his meekness and they were common in the Norfolk Island

Now survive in a highly fragmented landscape. Its area of distribution in Brazil ha sufrido una gran pérdida y degradación de bosques a través de la expansión agrícola y la producción de carbón. The forests of the North of Conception and those who are in Chaco, in the easternmost area of Paraguay, están siendo sometidos a una presión creciente y han visto una considerable deforestación en los últimos 10 years (R. Clay in litt., 2009).

    There is one hybridization apparent with the Maroon-bellied Parakeet (Pyrrhura frontalis) observed in the río Apa (R. Clay in litt., 2009).

    The comercio es aparentemente mínima (pit et to the., 1997).

    "Blaze-winged Parakeet" in captivity:

    These small parrots are very rare in captivity, Although its potential for pets is excellent. Are birds animated and soon procured confidence with its owner. They often enjoy bath and are not hard chewing. Son en su mayoría calm and they shall only be loud when they are excited. They can be aggressive toward other birds.

    The head of the Pygmy hanging parrot (Loriculus exilis) is green, brighter around the base of the bill and bathed in bluish green at the chin, the throat, the cheeks and the part front of it crown.

    The underparts is green, with the rump and uppertail-coverts dark red (very extended below the tail); the sides and the base of the rump are greenish-yellow. Wings green. Under, the wings Turquoise with coverts green. Throat of color red bordered of blue pale and extending is about part superior of the chest; rest of the underparts green, slightly more clear that the upperparts. The tail, at the top, Green with yellowish tips; undertail, the tail is of a pale color green blue.

    The bill coral red; irises yellow; legs oranges.

    New Caledonian Lorikeet
    Charmosyna diadema

    New Caledonian Lorikeet

    Content


    Anatomy-parrots-eng

    Description

    18 to 19 cm.. length.

    The females of the New Caledonian Lorikeet (Charmosyna diadema) are green in general, with the crown Violet Blue intense and the thighs Blue dark, a face Beige and it bottom side and anal region red. The tail It is green above and yellowish olive below, with the four lateral feathers with red basal markings followed by a band of black, with yellow tip on the bottom. The bill is red-orange, the irises dark orange, probably, similar to the legs.

    The males they have not been registered. On the basis of similar species, they probably have a more red coloration, probably including the face, the bottom of the primaries and the sides of the rump; and it is likely to be slightly larger than. The immature should look like females but paler.

    Habitat:

    This bird is difficult to track because it is Nomad and is relatively little visible. The species is believed to be able to live in moist montane forests but (seasonally). Flying in and out of the lowland forests of Melaleuca. Most reports come from such lowland forests, but this probably reflected only a better accessibility for observation. Mt. Ignambi It is believed that it is an ideal habitat for the species. The report Yacht Lake was an area of low scrub.

    Reproduction:

    Data playback of the New Caledonian Lorikeet (Charmosyna diadema) are only available the of the Red-flanked Lorikeet (Charmosyna placentis) and the Red-fronted Lorikeet (Charmosyna rubronotata). The breeding season, probably, is from July to December, and possibly until February, or even all year round. They dig in the arboreal nests of termites or in epiphytic ferns. Link gives as a result the implementation of two (sometimes three?) White rounded eggs; the incubation period likely to be similar to other species of Loris.

    Food:

    The bird apparently is fed into the tops of the trees.
    Related species eat nectar, pollen, flowers and sometimes delicate fruits, in pairs or small groups feeding (usually less than 10). The Erythrina is specifically mentioned as plants on which this species feeds.

    Distribution:

    Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 1 km2

    Possibly extinct. Endemic to New Caledonia and known from two female specimens collected in 1859. The species also could have been observed in the forests of the North of the island in the year 1900. and it was identified by the Islanders with the reference of a picture (at Delacour 1966) of Anthony Stokes in December of 1976. One Islander claimed to see a single individual in the Decade of 1920, and another had observed two the 3 in June of 1976 to the West of Monte Panie. This last observation was made by an experienced observer who noticed the birds by their call, and said it was different to Coconut Lorikeet. The authors are in agreement with Necklace et to the. (1994) in the extension of remaining forests in New Caledonia and the size of the island indicate that this species may well still exist and that observations and studies should be within suitable habitat including the Monte Panie, Mount Humboldt and other forest areas of the Highlands. IN DANGER.

    Conservation:


    Critically Endangered


    • Current IUCN Red List category: Critical Hazard

    • Population trend: Unknown

    The population It is estimated between 1 and 49 individuals mature.

    This species has not been recorded with certainty since 1913, despite specific searches in 1998, and it may have decreased as a result of a number of different threats. However, cannot be assumed that they have become extinct, because there were local reports in the Decade of 1950 and in 1976, and lorites of this genus are notoriously difficult to detect, being discreet and nomadic, more studies are needed. Any remaining population is likely to be small, and for these reasons it is in Critical Hazard.

    The montane moist forest is not under threat, but it is possible that this species has a requirement for other habitats, some of which, forests semi-deciduous in particular, the lowlands, they have almost disappeared from the island (Ekstrom et to the. 2000, Ekstrom et to the . 2002). Several Lori headband have suffered severe population decreases and fluctuations by unknown causes (Forshaw 1989). The introduction of any disease is possible (such as malaria, avian) or more likely mammals (especially rats) they may have been one of the causes of the decline of this species.(Bregulla 1992, Ekstrom et to the. 2000, Ekstrom et to the ., 2002).

    Habitat:

    Red billed Parrot

    It is a very rare species. It inhabits en montañas de selvas húmedas y semi-húmedas nubladas, edges of forest and partially deforested areas, between 200-2850 m, Although they are more frequent at altitudes of 500-1.500 m. They use areas of secondary growth, partially deforested with tall trees scattered and sometimes light forests on coffee plantations, being less frequent in dry areas.

    Gregario fuera de la temporada de cría; formations in flocks of up to 50 birds, sometimes more where the food is abundant. Children sleep in community.

    Reproduction:

    They nest in the cavity of the trees, sometimes in very degraded habitats. Aves en actitud cría durante los meses de febrero-abril en Colombia; Cría en meses de abril-junio en Venezuela, January-may in Ecuador; Nest occupied in October in Bolivia. Laying three eggs in captivity.

    Food:

    Feeds of fruit, berries and seeds.

    Distribution:

    Size of the area of distribution (reproduction / resident): 169.000 km2

    This species has a distribution batch through them land high in the North and West of South America, from Venezuela to the North of Bolivia. You can find in the North of Venezuela, in the mountains of Anzoátegui, Sucre, North of Monagas and apparently, of way to discontinuous, in the Highlands of the Federal District through the mountains coastal, to the West, until Lara and Falcon, then in the Sierra de Perija, Zulia and parts adjacent in Colombia, West to the foothills of Santa Marta in Magdalena, also locally in the Eastern Andes of Boyacá and Huila. Extends over the Western side of the Andes in Ecuador, from Pichincha until Gold and for all the East side to the northeast of Peru.

    Although there are no records in the Eastern Andean slope, in the central and southern Peru, the range includes the Yungas North of Bolivia in Santa Cruz and Cochabamba.

    common locally; apparently less numerous in the West of Ecuador and North of Bolivia, and probably in decline locally due to the deforestation (for example, in the Ecuador Western, North of Venezuela and Andes of Colombia).

    A recent study not localized to the subspecies Pionus sordidus antelius in its area of distribution widely cleared, Although the subspecies can dwell in forests moderately disturbed.

    Mantenidos como animales de compañía localmente aunque generalmente scarce in captivity.
