Habitat & threats

It inhabits the canopy of lowland humid forest, much of which is disappearing very rapidly due to expanding plantations. Natural predators are limited to snakes and nest robbing mammals.

 

Diet

Flocks of these parakeets can be observed at forest edges or in the canopy, feeding on the seeds and fruits of a variety of secondary forest trees.

Breeding and social dynamics

A highly social bird, they form flocks when feeding. Breeding occurs from September to December when two to four eggs are normally laid in a nest within a tree cavity. The eggs are incubated for 22 to 25 days and the nesting period that follows lasts around 45 days.
