Presquet’s Parrot in Cikananga

5 November 2018 – A native to the Montane Forests of Papua, they are a highly specialized frugivore- meaning the have evolved a special beak to eat mostly various types of fruit.  As you can see ‘Angry Bird’ just loves his morning papaya!

Sadly, like all our birds at Cikananga, he was illegally caught from the wild and traded to be someone’s pet! We hope in the future he may one day return to the mountains of Papua.
