A member of a primitive group of parrots (family Strigopidae), moving in large flocks often containing Keas, to which they are closely related. Considered as vulnerable because of competition from wasps and bees for the honeydew excreted by scale insects; and because of predation by introduced rats, possums and stoats to which the females, nesting in cavities for~ 100 days are exposed.
