Mascarene Parrot

Mascarinus mascarin (Linnaeus, 1771)

The Mascarene Parrot or Mascarin (Mascarinus mascarinus) is an extinct species of parrot that was endemic to the Mascarene island of Réunion in the western Indian Ocean. The taxonomic relationship of this species has been subject to debate. It has been connected to the Psittaculini parrots based on anatomical grounds, but to the vasa parrots based on genetic grounds. The exact placement is, as yet, unresolved. Source: Wikipedia
