Superb Parrot by Bueshang Superb Parrot by Bueshang
This photo was taken of a male superb parrot that we breed. There not very common living only in River Red Gum forest in Victoria and NSW in Australia. There currently in a breeding program to get there numbers back up.

I currently has two young hand rased superb running around the house at the moment, they have a sweet tooth and a thing for ripping up paper.=)

A little except he is twice the size, I think its because for a parrot he has a small beak :D

awwww he is such a pretty boy, there is this female superb parrot in the pet shop across the road from my house and she has been there 4 about 3 weeks and no one wants her, i would love her but she is a tad exspencive and i already have a budgie, she looks very lonely cos her male companion was bought separate....i hope she finds a good home, thats a lovely photo, he is so pudgy!!!

She should not be there too long, surprisingly most people are looking for a female they are harder to come by then the males when they are looking to breed, even though they dont look as bright.
At the moment I have one hand raised living in my house and he is just adorable and very much the character :D

i love birds or just any animal with character, well i do hope she gets a home soon, hopefully good bird breeder!!! well ive only seen a few superb parrots in pet shops really and most of them were females, ive only seen 2 male ones but they were sold with a female as a pair not separate. i think they shouldnt sell them separate cos u see them together then one gets bought separate and the other one is lonely.

That has to be one of the most adorable birds I've ever seen! It's such a shame their numbers are so small... but hopefully with you and everyone else in that program, they'll be booming again soon!
