(Psittacus erithacus)

From time to time we have surprises.That happens to me last weekend.I went to the D.Carlos park in Caldas da Rainha looking for the Canada gooses which appeared about two weeks ago no one knows from where and are spending a few days in the city. After having found and photographed I was looking around when suddenly it appears very quiet looking for some food this Congo parrot.I saw this species on the wild in 1994 at the Congo Democratic Republic.For sure this one run away from a cage and now habits the city park.

More info about the species:

Have a nice time and thanks for viewing...
