Red-breasted Pygmy-Parrot

The Red-breasted Pygmy-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 Red-breasted Pygmy-parrot (Micropsitta bruijnii) is found in the boreal forests, subtropical or tropical forest areas of Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Solomon Islands. They occur at higher altitudes than other pygmy parrots, and use trees rather than arboreal termite nests as breeding sites. Red breasted Pygmy parrots only average 8 cm or 3 inches in length. More
