The breeding season begins in August or September; males are very territorial and pairs engage in courtship routines such as mutual feeding and preening (4). Nests are situated high up in native trees, the clutch size is usually two and the female will incubate the eggs for three to four weeks whilst her partner brings her food (4). Both parents then provide for the hatchlings until they fledge at around two months old (4).
Mauritius parakeets are highly arboreal birds, rarely seen on the ground. They feed on native plants, preferentially consuming fruit but also feeding on buds, shoots, leaves and flowers (4).
