…a species of psittaculid parrot that is endemic to New Caledonia. They typically inhabit laurel forests and pine forests with Agathis and Aaucaria present. Like other parrots this species will congregate in pairs or small flocks and will forage for seeds and nuts in trees. True to its common name E. cornutus sports two black and red feathers that protrude from its head.
Currently Eunymphicus cornutus is listed as vulnerable and has been in decline since the 1800’s. It is threatened mostly by habitat fragmentation/destruction and poaching.
"I also believe that introversion is my greatest strength. I have such a strong inner life that I’m never bored and only occasionally lonely. No matter what mayhem is happening around me, I know I can always turn inward."
