SPECIES INFO

The Yellow-crowned Parakeet, Cyanoramphus auriceps, is a species of parakeet endemic to the islands of New Zealand. The species is found across the main three islands of New Zealand, North Island, South Island and Stewart Island/Rakiura, as well as on the subantarctic Auckland Islands. It has declined due to predation from introduced species such as Stoats, although unlike the Red-crowned Parakeet it has not been extirpated from the mainland of New Zealand.
