The Black-capped Lory, Lorius lory, also known as Western Black-capped Lory or the Tricolored Lory, is a parrot found in New Guinea and adjacent smaller islands. It is a colorful and relatively robust lory (31 cm). There are seven subspecies, all with green wings, red heads and body around the wing, a black cap, grey-black cere, yellow underwings, and blue legs and belly. Most also have a blue nape and mantle (area between wings on the back). It remains overall widespread and common, but the subspecies cyanuchen is relatively rare, with fewer than 5000 individuals remaining.
