Biology

This parrot has a diverse diet, feeding on fruit, seeds, nectar, sap, invertebrates and also honeydew in some areas. It nests in natural cavities in old or dying trees, and appears to depend on infrequently available food crops in order to breed (4). Females usually lay four eggs, and juveniles only reach independence after seven months (2).
