Blue-Crowned Hanging Parrot

Loriculus galgulus

This petite parrot is found in the forested lowlands of the Malay Peninsula and the Greater Sunda Islands (except for Sulawesi). Roosting is done upside down, hence the name “hanging” parrot. In the wild, this parrot mainly eats fruits, nectar, buds, flowers, seeds, and occasionally small insects.
