Parrots’ record breeding season

 

 

 

 

 

Scientists say the birds are an “unusual” parrot as the females control the breeding process.

 

 

They mate every two to four years when the rimu trees are full of fruit.

 

 

Experts are baffled as what makes the rimu fruit a super fruit among the parrots.

 

 

They believe that its high vitamin D content could be linked with fertility and health.
