Modest Parrot

The Modest Parrot is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Modest Parrot (Psittacella modesta) is native to New Guinea, the mountains of Vogelkop Peninsula, Irian Jaya, in Indonesia, where they are uncommon, but widely distributed through its range. Their habitat includes montane forest areas, edges of forests and tall secondary vegetation between 1,700 and 2,800 m (4,300 and 9,300 ft). These rare and shy parrots are only occasionally encountered as they are mostly found in uninhabited areas - although if found feeding, they can be surprisingly approachable. More

out back in the 1970's as a modest parrot park has grown to more than ten times its original size to become one of the Canary Islands' most popular attractions. Consisting of 13 hectares (32 acres) of impeccably recreated jungles and animal habitats, you'll quickly find that the park has the best and biggest of everything- the largest collection of parrots, the biggest dolphinarium, one of the most modern aquariums... trust us, the list goes on.
