The Blue-naped Parrot or Tanygnathus lucionensis is also known as the Blue-crowned Green Parrot, Luzon Parrot, the Philippine Green Parrot, and locally known as Pikoy, is a parrot found throughout the Philippines. After spending few day at Kinabalu Park, two days on the other side of the Island which I can’t remember, Harry Miller drove us back to the city in which we spent some birding afternoon at a city park where we found this Parakeet with a big flock.

The experience was really fun as we were chasing them around from one tree to another. The rain poured suddenly chasing us to retreat to a shelter; but then these Parakeets circled around again and settled on trees, so it was quite a fun memory having them on the last day of our birding trip in Borneo.
