December 26, 2015 – Black-headed Parrot, Black-Headed Caique, or Black-Capped Parrot (Pionites melanocephalus)

Requested by: @theparrotproject

Found in northern South America around the Amazon Basin, these parrots can live up to 40 years. Somewhat weak fliers, they tend to climb, jump, and hop frequently. They eat seeds, flowers, fruits, and leaves with a few birds often watching for danger as others in the flock forage. Nesting in tree cavities, such as those made by woodpeckers, they lay two to four eggs. They are fairly common in captivity and known for their playful behavior.
