Buru Red Lory
E. b. cyanonotha ( red lory subspecies)
This stunning subspecies is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain in Australia. We are without a doubt the largest breeders of them in Australia. Our original unrelated lines date back to the imports. Some of our breeders are over 25 years of age. The biggest threat to this subspecies in Australia is the interbreeding between the subspecies eg Buru x Moluccan , this creates muddied offspring.
Unknowingly people buy these birds, thinking they are pure and in many cases on selling them or selling the young into the avicultural market.
Buru's are a smaller bird than a Moluccan, on maturity they are a maroon red from the shoulders down, they carry more blue than the Moluccan and are more of a challenge to breed.
We have had multiple pairs of Buru's lay with fertility at two years of age, but it often takes another season for them to raise confidently.
The first step to successfully breeding Lories is obtaining healthy compatible pairs. If you're interested in enquiring about availability or purchasing some of our stock, whether it be single birds or unrelated pairs or if you're just after some more advice on this species
