Double-eyed Fig-parrot
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Double-eyed Fig-parrot Cyclopsitta diophthalma, also known as the Blue-faced Fig-parrot, Red-Faced Fig-parrot, Dwarf Fig-parrot, and the Two-eyed Fig-parrot, inhabits primarily the island of New Guinea, but is also found in isolated spots along the Australian coast. An average individual is about 5 1/2 in.(14 cm) in length. As with many birds, the plumage of either sex differs, with the male of the species possessing bright plumage and the female possessing more dull of a display.
The Double-eyed Fig-parrot generally forages for figs, berries, seeds, nectar, and the grubs of wood-boring insects. This foraging is done in pairs or in a flock of only a few individuals. It tends to fly in a quick and direct manner. It produces a short and shrill call. Their nesting behavior consists of boring a hole into a rotten tree.

There are eight described subspecies of the Double-eyed Fig-parrot.
