Tanygnathus

 

Name Tanygnathus lucionensis hybridus, Polillo Blue naped parrot, Kagit
Distribution The Philippines, Talaud Island and islands of northeast Borneo. However the subspecies is restricted to Polillo and Patnanungan
Habitat Forest and forest edge
Remarks
The decline of this near-threatened species is largely attributed to hunting and habitat loss, activities that have really taken their toll on much of Polillo's avifauna. Our surveys observed a small number of individuals from only Patnaungan and Panukulan, with a single breeding pair being observed in Panukulan. The subspecies is therefore considered extremely at risk.
