“…we saw many birds coming to one site to feed. This is an abandoned oil palm estate now converted to eco-tourism and has significant secondary growth.
“Many birds were coming to eat the flesh of a few remaining oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) fruits including these Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot (Loriculus galgulus). Images top and above are of a male.
“The image above and below are of a female. Below further shows the blue crown that is also present in adult females, and is occasional not well illustrated in some guides.”
