A few months ago when we started this blog we wrote a story about a White-fronted Parrot. We were so excited that the parrot had posed for some pictures, that we were quick to identify it. In our birding haze, we identified incorrectly.
It was only after sighting the same parrots yesterday, that we realized it was actually a Red-Lored Parrot, and this time the photo posing was even better.
A couple of parrots noticed us below, and decided to put on a show for us. They were exposing their tail feathers, spreading their wings, and the male even went in for a kiss. When we were reviewing the photos we realized that it was Red-lored parrot, and not the White fronted Parrot.
The Red-lored Parrot is also known as the Red-lored Amazon, the Yellow Cheeked Parrot, and the Mango Parrot.
