blue-naped parrotThe Blue-naped parrot also known as Pikoy, Luzon Parrot, or Philippine Green Parrot, is native to the country, spanning from Luzon and Mindoro to Talaud islands and small parts of Borneo. They nest in light growths—forest edges, plantations, sparse growth, and regional woodlands—amid the wide variety of habitats locally where they can thrive easily.

These birds can live long, with their 40-60 years of life span. Their slender build, powerful head and beak, and sleek and soft feathers give them their own unique, sharp elegant appearance.

Like other species of parrots, they have the ability to mimic and repeat short phrases. They would chatter quietly to themselves in an attempt to imitate human speech. They are inquisitive by nature and have a calm behavior. They aren’t overly vocal and excitable as the other species. They can also be affectionate and charm you with their goofy, chatty behavior.

Under RA 9147 or the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act, blue-naped parrots are protected. Killing and keeping illegally acquired parrots are not only considered wildlife crimes but may also lead to severe impacts on ecosystems and livelihoods. Hence, it is important to keep them in their natural habitat. (DENR; PetGuide)
