Parrots can be some of the most colorful birds displaying multiple colors. In 2017, there were only three female orange-bellied parrots that remained in the wild. And 23 birds only arrived at their breeding site in Tasmania’s southwest wilderness.
Scientists predicted that they were at risk of extinction within five years, but last winter, more than 118 birds were recorded flying north for the season. The first time the orange-bellied parrot population topped 100 in over a decade.
Hopefully, these beautiful Parrots will continue to grow in strong numbers.
