Crimson Shining-Parrot - The Crimson Shining Parrot is a medium sized parrot with a long tail and bright plumage. The head, breast and belly are covered in bright crimson-red, its back, wings and tail are green with hints of blue in the wing. It has a long winged appearance in flight, flying with undulating bouts of flaps and gliding. The species is very vocal; the chreiks and squawks of the Crimson Shining Parrot are of a higher pitch than that of the Red Shining Parrot. On Kadavu it is unlikely to be mistaken for the other species of parrot, the Collared Lory.
