Turquoise Parrot

Neophema pulchella (Shaw, 1792)

The Turquoise Parrot (Neophema pulchella) is a parrot of the grass parrot genus Neophema native to Eastern Australia, from southeastern Queensland, through New South Wales and into north-eastern Victoria. A small parrot at around 20 cm (8 in) long, it exhibits sexual dimorphism. The male is predominantly green in colour and more yellowish below with a bright turquoise blue face and red shoulders on the predominantly blue wings. The female is generally duller and paler, with a pale green breast and yellow belly, and lacks the red wing patch. Source: Wikipedia
