*the first European ornithologists to see eclectus parrots thought they were of two distinct species because of there distinctive colors.
large populations of this parrot remain, and they are sometimes considered pests for eating fruit off trees. some populations restricted to relatively small islands are comparably rare. their bright feathers are also used by native tribes people in New Guinea as decorations.
