The Pesquet's Parrot is a species of parrot found in New Guinea rainforest habitat. It has a conservation status of Near Threatened, facing habitat loss and hunting.
Pesquet's Parrots have an interesting look. They have a mostly blackish body plumage, with striking red at the belly and wing panels. They have nearly bare faces, which gives them their alternate name, the Vulturine Parrot.
Pesquet's Parrots have a specialized vegetarian diet, feeding mostly on fig fruits. While they are non-migratory, they will move seasonally, depending on the availability of figs. Their bare faces are likely an adaptation to keep themselves clean while feeding on these sticky fruits.
