SPECIES INFO

The Red-throated Lorikeet Charmosyna amabilis is a critically endangered lorikeet endemic to Fiji. It is 18cm long and is bright green overall, with red cheeks, throat and thighs.

This bird occurs on the islands of Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and Ovalau. Ten specimens were collected in 1923, but it was last recorded in 1993, although it may also have been seen on Mt. Tomaniivi on Viti Levu in 2001. A search of Viti Levu in 2001-2 failed to find any birds, as did a second series of surveys in 2003.
