The Red-fan Parrot, also known as the Hawk-headed Parrot, is a species of parrot that lives around the Amazon river in South American countries like Peru, Brazil, and Columbia. Their preferred habitat is tropical rainforest and savanna land.
The Red-fan Parrot has a unique look which includes a fan-like group of feathers around the nape of the neck that can be raised when the bird is alarmed.
These beautiful parrots are sometimes kept as companion pets, though they are not overly popular in the parrot trade. Their life expectancy in captivity ranges from 30 to 40 years.
