Senegal parrot

Poicephalus senegalus


I assume this to be a pet escapee since it is well outside its normal flying range and there are no parrots native to the Western Cape.


Photographed in the wild.

Vegetation very different here compared to the tropical areas of West Africa so I think it might struggle unfortunately.

looks so good natured too.Somebody must have released it. Hope it makes it in the wild!
