This image depicts another of the parrot species that I bred and raised when I lived in Seattle, and that I researched before my NYC postdoctoral fellowship ended. The best friend I ever had was duyvenbode’s lory, in fact. How I miss my lories!
Fourth in a series of images of lories by this photographer.
Brown Lory, also known as the Duyvenbode’s Lory, Chalcopsitta duivenbodei. This species is endemic to the island of New Guinea.
