A black beak, head and tail, black and gray chest and scarlet feathers that resemble the lining of a coat make the name “Dracula” incredibly suitable for this parrot! The Pesquet parrot is a very bright bird with an extraordinary coloring that distinguishes it from other parrots and looks like a real rebel.
At Animal site, we fell in love with this goth from the world of parrots and we hope you will also appreciate its extraordinary beauty.
The Pesquet parrot lives in the mountains of New Guinea. Its rather unusual coloring gave the parrot its second name, Dracula parrot. Male and female parrots are very similar, except for one small detail: female parrots do not have this little red patch behind their ears. Dracula parrots are large and reach 18 inches from their beak to the tip of their tail. Their half-bald heads make them even more frightening and attractive at the same time.
Aside from their unique appearance, these parrots produce quite peculiar noises which are often described as groans and groans. Unfortunately, due to their bright color, Pesquet parrots have become a target for poachers and their population is declining. We hope that raising awareness of this problem will help keep this bird and other animal species alive and safe.
Meanwhile, enjoy a bunch of bright photos showing Dracula parrots in all their splendor.
