Superb parrot (Polytelis swainsonii)

This is a brilliant green parrot with a distinctively long, slender, graduated tail and a swift and graceful flight. One of the diagnostic features of the superb parrot is the bright yellow face of the male, sharply demarcated by a scarlet band across the upper breast. The female is a duller green than the male with a bluish-green face, red thighs and rose-pink edges to the tail feathers. Both have a red iris and bright pinkish-red bill, and the juvenile is similar to the adult female. In flight, their sleek bodies, long pointed tails and backward swept wings give superb parrots a distinctive silhouette.
