Hawk headed parrots, also known as “Hawk Heads,” are extremely unique and unusual parrots. They are easily recognized by their beautiful, multi- colored “headdress” which will flare up or down, depending on the bird’s mood. When startled, they will often flare out their headdress in the hopes of scaring away predators. The feathers on the back of a Hawk Head are green, while the feathers on the chest and headdress are bright red and blue. Their heads are typically brown/gray with grayish striping along the eyes. Hawk Headed Parrots have black beaks and brown/orange eyes. They are truly a striking parrot.
