Habitat: VITI LEVU (Fijii Islands) It is to be found in the centre and east of Viti Levu, e.g. Joske's Thumb near Suva, but has also been observed on the Yasawa Islands. Commonly found at undisturbed mature forest, mainly below 1000 m, but also found in secondary scrub and plantations. General: The pink-billed parrot finch is a large and robust parrot finch. The sexes are alike. The special feature is the long glossy-pink and outsized beak, which gave the bird it’s name. The general colour is olive-green with black face, bluish crown and a red nape and rump. Immature birds similar but duller, having orange-horn bill with black tip. It is reported that the first imported birds came in 1914 to Germany. One pair was shipped to Hugo Dicker from Halle/ Germany. Probably no more was imported afterwards. The whereabouts of the other birds is unknown. A similar species is the fiji parrotfinch (E. pealii). This species is smaller with a brighter green and a much smaller, dark bill (though immatures have horn-coloured bill). Number of eggs: -- Incubation period:-- Nestlings leaving nest after -- days
