Photographer's Note

The Eclectus Parrot is unusual in the parrot family for its marked sexual dimorphism of the colours of the plumage. The male is mostly bright green with a blue or red tail and wing feathers; while the female is mostly red with a blue/purple abdomen. The upper mandible of the adult male is orange at the base fading to a yellow towards the tip, and the lower mandible is black. The beak of the adult female is all black. Adults have yellow to orange irises and juveniles have dark brown to black irises. The upper mandible of both and male and female juveniles are brown at the base fading to yellow towards the biting edges and the tip.
