Chalcopsitta sintillata, also known as the Moluccan Red Lory, is a stunning parrot species found primarily in the Moluccan Islands of Indonesia. These birds are known for their vibrant red and orange plumage, which is offset by patches of blue and green on their wings and tail feathers
. In addition to their striking appearance, Moluccan Red Lories are known for their playful and intelligent personalities. They are highly social birds that thrive on interaction with their human caretakers and other birds. Unfortunately, habitat loss and trapping for the pet trade have led to a decline in wild populations of this species, making conservation efforts all the more important.
