Biology

In the early morning and evening this parrot forages in the treetops for fruits and seeds. It nests in tree-holes, and breeds between February and March (2). The female lays up to three eggs, and incubates them for around 28 days. When the chicks hatch, they are bald, blind and depend on their parents for food, protection and warmth (5). The parents look after the young, feeding them by regurgitating food, and after about 80 days the fledglings join the adults in the forest (5).
