Brief Summary

Read full entry


Salvadori's biology and behaviour in the wild remain poorly understood. The diet is thought to include fruit, and some have become habituated to human presence and feed on biscuit crumbs left by hikers, but very little else is known (5). Most breeding appears to occur from April to July, when these birds can usually be found in pairs, although a pair and single juvenile have been observed together as late as December (5). In captivity, a clutch of two eggs has been recorded taking 22 days to hatch (2) (4) (5).
