King Parrot

Scientific Name

Alisterus scapularis
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.
