White-bellied Parrot by Rich Lindie

Photo of the Day – With Christmas just a week away, the White-bellied Parrot with its festive colours is a perfect way to end to the week. Found mainly south of the Amazon River, these gregarious birds spend a great deal of time feeding and socializing in the highest tree tops. Sadly their high levels of activity and wonderful nature makes them sought-after pets which, together with ongoing deforestation in the Amazon, has resulted in these parrots being classified as endangered. This magnificent individual was photographed in Brazil by Rich Lindie.
