Introduction

Introduction

The thick-billed parrot (Rhynchopsitta pachyrhyncha) is an endangered, medium-sized, up to 38 cm long, bright green parrot with a large black bill and a red fore crown, shoulder and thigh. Adult eyes are amber, while juveniles have brown eyes.  It is one of only two species of parrot that once lived in the United States.

Eggs are usually laid between mid-June and late July, and hatch between mid-July and late August. They lay 2-3 eggs. About two months after hatching , the young parrots leave the young parrot. For up to a year after hatching, the young are dependent on the parents to feed them and help them learn to find food by themselves.
