King Parrot : FAMILY: Psittacidae GENUS: Alisterus SPECIES: scapularis
Medium to large bright scarlet/orange and green coloured parrot. Males are easily identified. They have a bright scarlet/orange head, neck and underparts with a bright green back and wings. There is a narrow band of blue on the nape, and the rump, lower back and upper tail are also blue. The mandibles are scarlet with black markings, the eyes are yellow and the legs and feet are grey. Females differ from males in that their heads are dark green, the upper tail i also green and the throat and chest are a dull green with tinges of red on the upper throat. The bill like the feet and legs is grey. Immature birds strongly resemble the adult female. Often encountered in pairs or small parties, King Parrots feed mainly in trees but also spend time on the ground.
