Blue-Streaked Lory Species Profile
Traits:  Because of its current listing as CITES 1, avian experts prefer for blue-streaked lories to be placed into well-managed breeding programs to ensure the continued survival of the species. Owners of this species as pets note that they are loving companions and make excellent, quiet pets. People who have owned this species note that blue-streaked lories are loving and affectionate and very playful. They often “dance” by fluffing up their feathers and hopping.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Because blue-streaked lories are active birds, they need as large a cage as possible with plenty of toys to keep them occupied. Part of their diet should consist of good-quality nectar. Blue-streaked lories have a tendency to squirt waste matter and, because their diets contain nectar, the fairly liquid-like waste can make the surrounding area near the pet bird cage dirty. Easy-to-wipe surfaces near the cage, or an aviary where waste can be easily washed off, are good housing options.

Expert Advice
"Blue-streaked lories are very active, curious birds that can be affectionate with their favorite person. They can learn to mimic words and may call out when excited."
