Green-Naped Lorikeet Species Profile
Traits:  The green-naped lorikeet is stunningly beautiful, with nearly every color of the rainbow represented in its feathering. They are intelligent birds that thrive when afforded plenty of play time. Although some green-naped lorikeets can be nippy at sexual maturity, overall the species responds well to behavior training and they are enjoyable pet birds. Their amazing colors make it a popular choice at zoos, where green-naped lorikeets are kept in flocks and visitors can feed nectar to the the birds.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Green-naped lorikeets are very active birds, so they need as large a cage as possible with plenty of toys to keep them occupied. Part of their diet should consist of a quality nectar. They 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 cage dirty. Easy-to-cleans surfaces around the pet bird cage or aviary, or an area where waste can be easily hosed off, are good pet bird housing options.

Expert Advice
"Like all lorikeets, the green-naped lorikeet requires a special diet. It is an extremely endearing and loving bird that is smaller in size than other lorikeets, and it does not share in talking abilities as much as the other lorikeets are capable of."
