Serindit – Hanging Parrot feeding Mistletoe flowers
Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot – Serindit
(Loriculus galgulus) ~ female.
This ‘dedalu’ (mistletoe) grew on top of mango tree. Here my old post about this dedalu.
Blue-crowned hanging parrots mainly eat fruits, nectar, buds, flowers, seeds, and occasionally small insects.
Example of fruits: – Chiku by Ken Poh, guava by Lam Chun See.
This is a male species, picture by themonnie. I think this bird must be in captivity, so sharp with only the normal lens (50mm at f2.2) used.
