FEATURED PHOTO: Jaco strikes a pose

Photo taken by Vanessa Abraham of Vanessa Abraham Photography


This brilliant specimen of a bird referred to locally as the Jaco Parrot seems almost eager to have its picture taken striking a perfect profile pose.

This species of bird is also known as red-necked parrots or under its scientific designation as Amazona Arausiaca not to be confused with the indigenous Sisserou parrot (Amazona Imperialis).
