BURU Red Lory
Eos bornea cyanonothus
As much as the nominate sub-species is a great bird( the Moluccan, which we have bred) the Buru seems calmer, yet more playful in the aviary. The visual differences are very clear once you see them together. The Buru (140g) is 15/20% smaller & from the shoulders down, are a darker, more blood red. The young Buru do not have the soft blue ear patch of the young Moluccan. As the name suggests this sub-species come from Buru Isl. which is the third largest island within Maluku ( ex Moluccans) Islands of Indonesia. It lies between the Banda Sea to the south and Seram Sea to the north, west of Ambon and Seram islands.
Green-tailed or Yellow-bibbed Lory
One of the most active, playful Lories we have kept. Being in the Lorius family the Green-tails (170/200g) are related to, but not part of the larger (230g) Black-cap sub-species. Green-tails are from Guadalcanal, Malaita & San Cristobal Island, in the southern Solomon Islands
