Eclectus Parrot

Malagos Nature Park, Davao City, Philippines

A male Eclectus Parrot, native to the Solomon Islands, New Guinea and surrounding territories. The male species is known to have bright green plumage and orange beak such as this one, while the female species has bright red and purple plumage. This extreme sexual dimorphism is rare in the parrot family. Photo was taken with my iPhone 4s.
