Species Information:

Habitat/Range: Eclectus parrots are found in rainforests in Papua New Guinea and other small islands around Australia and Indonesia. 

Behavior: Eclectus parrots eat mainly fruits, wild figs, unripe nuts, flower and leaf buds, and some seeds. The light green coloration of the males helps them to forage high in the canopy, undetected by predators.

Breeding: These parrots are unlike other parrots in regards to their mating habits. One female mates with multiple males, which may explain their very different coloration. Her bright red color notifies males of her presence and warns off invading females from her nest site but still able to hide deep in her nest. The dark red is hard to see when it’s dark. 

Conservation: Listing: Least Concern.
