Superb Parrot (Polytelis swainsonii)
Threatened Species Day fact sheet
About the fact sheet
The Superb Parrot is a striking bird found in central woodland areas of southern New South Wales (NSW), the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and Victoria. Already under threat from land clearing, loss of hollows, and lack of regeneration of woodland habitat, this species may soon be faced with another challenge – the common myna bird.
