The Extraordinary Eclectus Parrots of the Cape York Rainforest

Spreads for web 2

By Jessie Zgurski

I recently travelled to the Cape York Peninsula of Australia to view its fascinating landscapes and wildlife. I chose to include this location on my itinerary because it is home to several bird species I have long wanted to see in the wild, including the Black Palm Cockatoo, which I wrote about in a previous issue, and the Eclectus Parrot.

Eclectus parrots have a very limited range on mainland Australia and only occur in rainforests in the Iron Range National Park on the east part of the peninsula. The subspecies that occurs there is called Eclectus roratus macgillivrayi, and it is the largest of all of the Eclectus subspecies, of which there are nine. Eclectus parrots also occur on the island of New Guinea and its surrounding islands, the Solomon Islands, Sumba, and the Moluccas Islands.
