Habitat: Wet montane evergreen rainforest. Bird's position in habitat: canopy. The bird was perched high in the canopy in a concealed spot. The background hiss is a mountain stream. The fig parrots (3-4 birds) were feeding on the fruit of an epiphytic fig. Their vocalizations were high-pitched chatter that sounds like small change clinking.

ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Lorius lory somu to Lorius lory to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
