They may be larger than the smallest bird, the bee hummingbird, but you can barely describe them as large. They are 8.6cm long and known as Buff-faced Pygmy parrots. They are indigenous to forests in New Guinea and the surrounding islands. It would be a wonder why people have not opted for these smaller parrots, but the success rate of successfully capturing and breeding them are relatively hard as they die quickly. This is as a result of finding it hard to feed them as they only feed on fungi and lichen.
