Batumi Zoo Corner Gets New Inhabitant

From Today There are 3 Eclectus Parrots (Eclectus roratus) In Batumi Zoo corner. The Eclectus Parrot, Eclectus roratus, is a parrot native to the Solomon Islands, Sumba, New Guinea and nearby islands, northeastern Australia and the Maluku Islands. Male and female eclectus parrots differ so radically in plumage that for years they were thought to be separate species. It is unusual in the parrot family for its extreme sexual dimorphism of the colours of the plumage; the male having a mostly bright emerald green plumage and the female a mostly bright red and purple/blue plumage. Their diet consists of fruit, nuts, seeds, flowers and nectar, obtained from the tree canopy. A stocky short-tailed parrot is about 35–40 cm in length. The average weight: from 300 to 500 grams. Average Lifespan: 40 - 50+ years. Age To Sexual Maturity: 2 to 3 years. Some birds may be 4 years of age before breeding. The female eclectus lay two eggs. Once the eggs are laid, the female eclectus rarely comes out of the nest box. The male eclectus feeds her during this time. The incubation period for the eggs lasts 28 days. Both parents raise the chicks together. When treated in a similarly caring and intelligent way they quickly learn to communicate cognitively. Eclectus parrots also prefer a calm environment and have a strong ability to notice changes within their normal surroundings. Eclectus parrots are remarkable birds and are ideal pets. Eclectus parrots have a wide and most unusual range of sounds, including soft bell or gong tones, coos, whistles, comic konks, squeals and even human voice. Classified as Least Concern (LC) on the IUCN Red List. There are 2 male and 2 female Eclectus Parrots In Batumi Zoo corner.
