Barrabands – Superb Parrots

Barrabands are also known as superb parrots. I describe them as medium sized parakeets or small parrots. They are slightly bigger than cockatiels.

These birds have beautiful colours and can be found in the wild in New South Wales and Northern Victoria in Australia.

Male Barrabands: Bright lime green body, yellow face and red stripe around the neck.

Female Barrabands: Slightly duller green than the male with almost a blue-grey tinge. Small red patch on the throat, yellow-orange socks, underside of the tail is a beautiful yellow-orange-pink.
