Loriinae.

World Wide Lori Preservation Group. 

The Family Loriinae.

 The Loriinae family is a subfamily from the Parrots.

We can split them up in two tribes,

·         lories and lorikeets also known as Loriini.

·         fig parrots also known as Cyclopsittini.

These two tribes also exists out of diffrent familys,

Loriini :

  • Chalcopsitta
  • Charmosyna
  • Eos
  • Glossopsitta
  • Lorius
  • Neopsittacus
  • Oreopsittacus
  • Pseudeos
  • Phigys
  • Psitteuteles
  • Trichoglossus
  • Vini

Cyclopsittini :

  • Cyclopsitta
  • Psittaculirostris

All these familys are havin more subspecies,

In the page overvieuw you can take a closer look on all species & subspecies. ( not ready yet, in a few weeks there will be much more info online )

Also all Loris and lorikeets are having a beautiful colloration in there plumage,

completely different colours as black to red and green

some pictures of diffrent species to show some of the fantastic colours :

 

the Loriinae is also a little bit strange to other parrot family’s, why ? 

well as example they have a really typical tongue for feeding them self’s , their specialized brush-tipped tongues are specialy for feeding them selfs with nectar of various blossoms and soft fruits.

 

 

 

in the wild, the Loriinae are widely distributed throughout the Australasian region and also from South-eastern Asia to Polynesia, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and ofcours Australia.

In our Aviculture they can be found all over the world,

From Australia to the Netherlands and also the United Kingdom.

 

 

This website will mostly be used for our Aviculture.

About our Aviculture,

We think it is getting realy important to work together.

Because the first species are already gone out of our aviarys!

With working together we need to think on a few points,

As example :

exchanging birds , research on species & Subspecies for breeding pure birds!

Years ago when the first lories are imported to the EU and UK, we didn’t know enough from the Loris. No one was sure about subspecies and a lot of species are crossed.

 

In our aviculture we feed the lories & Lorikeets with Lori Nectar and a lot of fruits,

Some people make there own nectar but there are also different kinds of nectar for sale.

Most of the time it is on powder base. thhe powder needs to be mixed up with water.

Everybody does it there own way, some are putting the fruit in it when they mix the nectar.

You can also give the fruit and nectar separated from each other.

more info will follow soon!!
