Kadavu ParrotRed-fronted Parakeet
This carmine parrot (Prosopeia splendens) is a parrot from Fiji. In the Kadavu group on the Kadavu and Ono Isles, the genus is indigenous. In the past, the parrot of Vanua Levu and Taveuni was regarded as a special parrot, but today it is a unique one. It is sometimes referred to as the Kadavu musky parrot.
This carmine shiny parrot is a middle size parrot (45 cm) with a long tale and light feather. Headache, chest and stomach are in brilliant purple, back, leaves and tails are verdant with a hint of blues in the leaves. It has a very powerful voice; the chhreiks and gleaming purple parrot gleaming in squawk have a higher tone height than the gleaming parrot.
It is unlikely that Kadavu will be confused with the other parrot variety, the Lori collar.
Ecology and behaviour
Papageien are spread in small droves of up to a Dozens bird over whole Kadavu and Ono. Most of their livelihoods are in wooded areas, but they can also go to farmhouses and backyards, mangrove and secundary forrests. Papageien are specialized Samenfresser, but they live also from fruit, Buospen and young sheaves.
There is some information about the brooding customs and how to nest the other two indigenous parrots: There is no in-depth investigation of the ecological and reproduction behavior of Kadavu shaping psittacines in Kadavu. Kadavu Parrotâ??s and its illicit trafficking as a cagebird are the biggest threat to the life of this raucous woodbird.
