King Parrot

Scientific Name

Alisterus scapularis
Category:
Native Animals

The King Parrot is usually found in rainforests or wet sclerophyll forests.

They forage in trees for seeds and fruit.

Their call is a loud high-pitched whistle with a rolling ‘carr-ack’ in flight.

King parrots are increasing in numbers in the well-treed suburbs so you’re likely to see them on a regular basis.
