About the Blue-naped Parrot

Also known as: Blue-crowned Green Parrot, Luzon Parrot, Philippine Green Parrot

The Blue-naped Parrot can be found throughout the Philippines including on islands off Borneo and the Talaud Islands. It can be found in forests to scattered trees up to 3,280 feet (1,000 meters). They flock in groups of usually less than a dozen and feed on berries, seeds, nuts and grain. Habitat loss and trapping have made them scarce on most islands except Mindoro and Palawan.

From IUCN Red List:
The Blue-naped Parrot is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2012 by BirdLife International. This species is listed as Near Threatened because there are some indications that it has a moderately small, fragmented population, and it may be undergoing a continuing decline owing to trapping and forest loss. However, little is currently known about the population size and structure, and threats to this species. Further information is needed to improve the accuracy of this assessment.
