Did you know that:

  1. Vinaceous Parrots have been observed drinking from a water-filled tree-hole high in the canopy of primary forest.
  2. They are so quiet when foraging that an observer can spend hours near the tree without noticing their presence, only to realize, when the parrots take flight, that the tree was full of birds. As a result, there is little information on foraging, all of it anecdotal. 
  3. Pairs can be seen allopreening and flying together at all times of the year
  4. Their name comes from the colour of their chest.
