Beautiful Green long tailed parrot. 37 - 42cm long, slender and bright light green. Males (pictured) have a bright yellow forehead and bib with a scarlet border. It also has a light turquoise patch on the crown. The bill is a dark pink. Females are similar to males with the absence of the yellow and scarlet around the head.
Riverine and flood plain forest especially Red River Gum. Birds seen here in southern NSW Australia. They are migratory through NSW and follow the Namoi and Maquarie river systems seasonally. Due to the increasing rarity of this bird I have not put an exact location in this spotting.
This is a classic case where the Red List status for a species needs some updating. Superb Parrots only live in a very restricted area in NSW and northern Victoria. There habitat is under extreme pressure and they are only found in a few localized areas.
