Nice Parrot photos

A few nice parrot images I found:

The Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot (Loriculus galgulus) is a small mainly green parrot found in forested lowlands from Thailand to Borneo. Blue-crowned Hanging Parrots are mostly green and the adults have black beaks. Adult males are have a blue crown, red throat, red rump, and a yellow lower back. Adult females are duller than males and lack the yellow lower back, usually lack the red throat, and the blue crown is much less noticeable.

Like other Hanging Parrots, this species roosts upside down and may also take a bath in the rain in the same position. This male just took a nice bath in the rainforest aviary at the San Diego Zoo.
