Birds

Foresten’s Lorikeet

Once a subspecies of the Rainbow Lorikeets, in 2012 Forsten’s Lorikeets were given their own species name, Trichoglossus forsteni. In addition to the birds on the island of Sumbawa where the common name of Forsten’s Lorikeets was used, birds on four other Indonesian islands with different subspecies and common name were incorporated into the new species.

Forsten’s Lorikeets’ other common names are Sunset Lorikeets and Scarlet-breasted Lorikeets. They are not currently on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List, their conservation status is under study.
