Bonanza Bird #7: Red-fan Parrot

Today we reveal Bonanza Bird #7: The Red-fan Parrot, also known as the Hawk-headed Parrot.

Hawk-headed Parrot

The Red-fan Parrot is a beautiful species that lives in South America. They are named for the unusual fan of feathers found around the nape. The bird can control the position of these feathers, raising or lowering them depending on their mood.

The ruff feathers of this species are particularly beautiful. We have created a few unique designs featuring a cute cartoon illustration of the feathers, including a heart shape made of feathers and a circular design where the bird is outlined by feathers.
