Amboina King Parrot

The Moluccan King Parrot, Alisterus amboinensis, is a parrot that is endemic to Peleng Island, Maluku and West Papua in Indonesia. It is sometimes referred to as the Ambon King Parrot or Amboina King Parrot, but this is potentially misleading, as it is found on numerous other islands than Ambon.

The male and female are similar in appearance, with a predoninantly red head and underparts, green wings (blue in one subspecies), and blue back and tail. Six subspecies are recognised, of which two are seen in aviculture. In the wild, it inhabits lowland rainforests and feeds on fruits, berries and seeds.
