The Philippine Hanging Parrot (Loriculus philippensis)



is also widely known as the Colasisi taken from its local Tagalog name, "Kulasisi". It is a small parrot species of the Psittacidae family. It includes about eleven subspecies, which are all native to only the Philippines; however, the exact taxonomy is unclear, and at least one of the subspecies might become split off and become separate species, if further research provides clarification.

They are mainly green with areas of red, orange, yellow, and blue varying between subspecies. Only the males have a red area on their fronts, except for the population living on Camiguin, where neither male or female have this red area. They make nests in tree holes, and unusually for a parrot the female takes nesting material back to the nest.

Description

Philippine Hanging Parrots are about 14 cm (5.5 in) long, weigh 32–40 g, and have a short rounded tail. They are mainly green with areas of red, orange, yellow, and blue varying between subspecies. The forehead is red and the irises are dark brown. Adults have red beaks and orange legs except for Loriculus (philippensis) bonapartei which have black beaks and grey legs.They are sexually dimorphic with only the males having red on their chin or upper chest, except for the Loriculus (philippensis) camiguinensis in which neither the male or female has a red bib or chest. Juveniles have less red on their heads and paler beaks, but otherwise resemble the female.

Distribution and habitat

The Philippine Hanging Parrot is native to the Phillipines except the Sulu Archipelago and it is not widespread on Palawan. The different subspecies are native to different islands, and some subspecies are rare or almost extinct. Trading of birds between the islands for pets has resulted in escaped pets living on different islands to where they originated.

Its natural habitats are tropical moist lowland forests, bamboo forest and tropical moist montane forest. It also occupies human-modified habitats including coconut groves and secondary forest. It is most common in lowland areas, being rare above 1250 m.

Behaviour and ecology
A male L. p. philippensis eating fruit at Subic Bay, Luzon, Philippines.

Philippine Hanging Parrots are usually encountered alone or in pairs, rarely in small groups.They mostly forage for food in the canopy or middle storeys of forests, and their diet is composed of nectar and flowers as well as soft fruits such as those from figs (Ficus).

The species is a season breeder, with nesting occurring from March to May. Like most parrots it is a cavity nester; a nest found in the wild was in a cavity high up in a dead tree. However, it is one of the few species of parrots that uses nesting material in the nest, the female tucks nesting material between feathers in order to take it back to the nest. In captivity the clutch size was 3 eggs which are incubated for 20 days. The chicks take around 35 days to fledge after hatching. The rounded eggs measure about 18.7 x 16.4 mm.

Loriculus (philippensis) camiguinensis



The Camiguin Hanging-parrot, Loriculus (philippensis) camiguinensis, is a hanging parrot endemic only on the Philippine island of Camiguin, where its habitat is diminishing. The taxonomy of this population of parrots on Camiguin is uncertain.

Description

The Camiguin Hanging-parrot is mostly green with blue throat, face and thighs, and a red tail and red crown. Males and female birds look identical, which is unusual for a hanging parrot native to the Philippines. Only the males of all the other populations living on other islands have a red area on their fronts.

Taxonomy

In 2006, the hanging-parrots living on the island of Camiguin, off the northern coast of Mindanao, were described as a separate species than the Philippine Hanging Parrot (Loriculus camiguinensis). However, more research and DNA analysis is required to clarify their taxonomy.

early afternoon, may nakita akong nagtinda nito sa street and i remember yung inuwi kong kulasisi from camiguin, (exactly looked like what's in the picture) given by my tito nahuli sa lupa namin sa bundok.. anyways, yung tinda e yung isang variety yung philippinensis, 175.00 isa 350.00 isang pair.. yung male daw is yung nag o-orange ang hood, i was really tempted kase may available cage ako, ewan ko, but i know from a story na sa samar maraming nahuhuli nito ang mga locals.. and baka eventualy ma endanger narin ito, since hindi naman ito madaling i keep as pet lalu na i breed..

 thumbsdown thumbsdown

sana may breeder na mag dedicate na paramihin ito at yun nalang ang itinda not yung nahuhuli pa sa forests..

you mean parang stressed sila pag naka cage (may rehas kahit free flying sila?)..

kase nung inuwi ko yung sa akin, ganun nga may bamboo tapos may naka tusok na stick kung san sya naka perch, tapos nakatali lang ang legs, hindi sya nakakalipad kase mga 1ft lang yung tali..

i think mas humane naman kung naka cage sila.. dapat ata i modify din ang kanilang behavior, parang domesticated..
