Eastern Ground Parrot

Pezoporus wallicus (Kerr, 1792)

The Eastern Ground Parrot (Pezoporus wallicus) of Australia is one of only five ground-dwelling parrots in the world, the others being its closest relatives, the Western Ground Parrot (Pezoporus flaviventris), the extremely rare Night Parrot (Pezoporus occidentalis), the somewhat closely related Antipodes Parakeet (Cyanoramphus unicolor), and the unrelated highly endangered Kakapo (Strigops habroptila) from New Zealand.
