Psephotus chrysopterygius dissimilis
Closely related to the Golden Shouldered Parrot and is also in some trouble in its habitat due to pressure from cattle and a burning program that is detrimental to the native grasses that it feeds on.
However a large number of birds are bred each year in aviaries so the bird has a secue future.
The Hooded Parrot nests in April to June, lays three to five eggs which take 20 days to hatch. About five weeks later, the young leave the nest.
