This parrot is also known as the Dracula Parrot or Vulturine Parrot due to its unusual looks.
As a specialist fruit eater it is seasonally nomadic, moving around to find the ripest ones. We offer a wide variety of fruit, plus nectar (as given to lorikeets) liquidised with additional fruit to make a delicious smoothie full of vitamins.
A threat to them in the wild is hunting for their feathers which are used for ceremonial dress.
We had just two male Pesquet’s but in Spring 2023 were able to arrange for two females to join them from Toledo Zoo in the USA.
