The Chattering Lory is a large species of parrot native to Indonesia. They are bright red overall, with green wings and orange beaks. There are three recognized subspecies; the Yellow-backed Lory can be recognized by its different back color.
Chattering Lorikeets live in the rainforest, and feed on fruit, pollen, and nectar.
Unfortunately, the popularity of the Chattering Lory in aviculture is a contributing factor to the species' decline in the wild. They also suffer from habitat loss on their native Maluku Islands in Indonesia. Their conservation status is considered Vulnerable as of June 2013.
