Senegal Parrot

Meet Snickers, our Senegal Parrot.

Senegal Parrots are a smaller species of parrots that can be found in north and central Africa. Their preferred habitat is savannah woodland and open forest. Senegal Parrots can be found singly, in pairs and in small flocks of ten to twenty parrots and are regularly found foraging in cultivated areas. While small flocks are still commonly seen in the center of their range, pairs or individual birds are more frequently seen in outlying areas where they were formerly abundant.

They have a relatively large head and beak for their overall size, and feathers form a short broad tail. Adults have a charcoal grey head, grey beak, bright yellow irises, green back and throat, and yellow, red or orange under parts and rump.
