The Mount Apo Lorikeet (Trichoglossus johnstoniae) – also known as the Mindanao Lorikeet, Johnstone's Lorikeet, Mrs. Johnstone's Lorikeet – comes from Mindanao in the Philippines. It is named after Mount Apo is a large solfataric, potentially active stratovolcano on the island of Mindanao. Almost certainly the first birds to be kept in captivity outside of the Philippines were those collected by Walter Goodfellow, who discovered this species in 1903, while on a collecting expedition for the English aviculturist, Mrs. Johnstone – Goodfellow gave this species the common (and Latin) name of Mrs. Johnstone's Lorikeet and three years after their collection from the wild, Mrs. Johnstone recorded the first captive breeding of this species when two chicks were reared in 1906. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. These brilliant colourful birds have mostly green plumage with splashes of yellow on their underwing and undertail coverts. Their orange bill is surrounded by bright orange feathers and dark purple ‘eye mask’.
