The Australian Ringneck is a beautiful species of parrot native to Australia. They live in southwestern forests of coastal and subcoastal Western Australia. The Twenty-eight Parrot is named for its call! It sounds like it is shouting out 'twentee-eight' when it calls. The bird eats mostly on the ground and its diet consists of seeds, fruits, insects and flowers.

Tomorrow's bird is an endangered species that makes an epic migration from the southern tip of South America to the Arctic. Can you guess what it will be?
